Jovitha'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.

Jovitha's Group's story

Jovitha, pictured above, has 4 children and is representing her group of 9 farmers in Iringa Two District, Tanzania. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2013 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills.

With a portion of this loan, Jovitha will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also solar light. Receiving solar light as part of her loan means that now she will be able to have light during the night in order to feel safer. Jovitha plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.

In total Jovitha’s Group will use the farming inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 10 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 2 solar lights.
