Remija's Group's story

Pictured above is Remija, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 15 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. She is a mother to seven children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Remija joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to save more money. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Remija plans to rent more land to cultivate.

Between the 15 farmers in Remija's Group, a total of 14.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
