Obedi's Group's story

Pictured above is Obedi, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 11 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. Obedi is known by his community as a very experienced farmer, and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

Initially, Obedi joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Obedi plans to save more money for the future.

Between the 11 farmers in Obedi's Group, a total of 17 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
