Shadrack's Group's story

Pictured above is Shadrack, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 37 years old and as a group leader, he is representing his group of 5 farmers in Kilolo North District, Tanzania.

Shadrack 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. Shadrack says that he is happy to have made that decision because since he first joined in 2015, he has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved his day to day life significantly. Shadrack will use the profits from this season to invest in a business.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6 acres.
