Christina'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.

Christina's Group's story

Christina is 50 years old and has two children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Iringa Two District, Tanzania.

Christina has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2013. This decision was largely a result of her desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, and although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Christina also decided to purchase two solar lights as part of her loan, which she is very excited about as it will allow her to have a light at the night as well as giving her children the ability to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Christina's Group will be able to receive a total of 2 solar light, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 15.5 acres.
