Damas' Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

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

Damas' Group's story

Pictured above is Damas, who is often described as an extremely friendly person. He is 44 years old and, as a group leader, he is representing his group of 10 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania.

Damas is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Damas says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2014, he has learned a lot from farming trainings, which have improved his day-to-day life significantly. Damas will use the profits from this season to repair his home.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 14 acres. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
