Amon'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.

Amon's Group's story

Amon is 50 years old and has four children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Amon is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 13 farmers in Iringa Two District, Tanzania.

Amon started working alongside One Acre Fund in 2013 and decided to do so because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, he has seen his life improve—especially in the sense that he has had more profits from each harvest. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

Amon’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 19.5 acres of land.
