Raimonda's Group's story
Raimonda's Group is formed by 16 farmers in Iringa Two District and is being represented by Raimonda, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 41 years old and has 5 children. Raimonda has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very reliable person. Raimonda isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Raimonda will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase three solar lights. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have a light at the night. Using this loan, Raimonda's Group will purchase a total of 3 solar light and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 22 acres.
