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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Tumaini's Group's story

Tumaini, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is now proud to represent her group of 9 farmers in Wanging ombe District. She is 29 years old, married and has 3 children.

Tumaini likes to think of herself as a very friendly person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has learned a lot from farming training. Tumaini plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy more land to cultivate in.

In total, Tumaini’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 6 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 1 solar light.
