A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Henry's Group's story

Pictured above is Henry, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 9 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. He is a father to 6 children and is known in his community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Henry joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Henry plans to save more money for the future.

Between the 9 farmers in Henry's Group, a total of 36 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, one of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan the group will also receive 1 solar light.
