Vick's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Vick's Group's story

Pictured above is Vick, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Iringa Two District, Tanzania. She is a mother to 6 children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Vick joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Vick plans to repair her home.

Between the 14 farmers in Vick's Group, a total of 15 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan and 2 solar lights.
