but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Konjeta's Group's story

Pictured above is Konjeta, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 16 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. She is a mother to three children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Konjeta joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. She says that her life has improved since she joined the program, especially because she has had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Konjeta plans to buy a goat.

Between the 16 farmers in Konjeta's Group, a total of 14.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received from the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
