Roida's Group's story

Roida's Group is formed by 11 farmers in Iringa District and is being represented by Roida, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 50 years old and has 6 children. Roida has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Roida isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2016 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has learnt a lot from farming trainings ever since. This year, Roida will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Roida's Group will purchase a total of 10 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 8 acres.
