Gaspari's Group's story

Pictured above is Gaspari, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 66 years old and has eight children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 12 farmers in Kilolo South District, Tanzania.

Gaspari is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Gaspari says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2014, he has been able to save more money, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Gaspari will use the profits from this season to repair his home.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 17 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of five solar lights.
