Martina's Group's story

Pictured above is Martina, often described as an extremely reliable person. She is 49 years old and has six children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 11 farmers in Kilolo North District, Tanzania.

Martina is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund because doing so means that she is able to have access to quality training. The reason Martina first joined is because she is able to learn new farming methods. Martina says that she is happy to have made the decision to join in 2016. Since then, she has made more profit from each harvest, which has improved her day to day life significantly. Martina will use the profits from this season to rent more land to cultivate.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of seven acres. The group will also receive funds to purchase one solar light with this loan.
