Jemsi's Group's story

Pictured above is Jemsi, who is often described as an extremely friendly person. He is 49 years old and has 7 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 8 farmers in Kilolo North District, Tanzania.

Jemsi is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to earn enough to feed his family, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Jemsi says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2014, he has gained a lot of respect in his community, which has improved his day to day life significantly. Jemsi 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 6.5 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 2 solar lights.
