A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Ratifa's Group's story

Ratifa is 45 years old and has 2 children. She is a group leader and is representing 12 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania.

Ratifa has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program in 2012. This decision was largely a result of her desire to get the best-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and, although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund.

Ratifa also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Ratifa's Group will be able to receive 2 solar lights and farming inputs to plant 18 acres.
