Upendo's Group's story
Upendo, pictured above, has been a farmer for 14 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 9 farmers in Iringa District. She is 38 years old, married and has 2 children. Upendo likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has learnt alot from farming trainings. Upendo plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy more land to cultivate in. In total, Upendo’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 8 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
