Upendo's Group's story

Pictured above is Upendo, often described as an extremely trustworthy person. She is 41 years old and has eight children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 18 farmers in Wanging ombe District, Tanzania.

Upendo is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund as this means she is able to access quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Upendo says she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2018, she has learned a lot from the farming training, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Upendo will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 20.5 acres.
