Castori's Group's story

Pictured above is Castori, often described as an extremely reliable person. He is 63 years old and, as a group leader, he is representing his group of 12 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania, in this photo.

Castori is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means he can get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. This same reason is why Castori decided to join in the first place. Castori says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2012, he has been able to save more money, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Castori will use the profits from this season to buy a goat.

The group will use this loan to purchase a total of 2 solar lights as well as seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 11 acres.
