Atu'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.

Atu's Group's story

Pictured above is Atu who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 11 farmers in Wanging ombe District, Tanzania. He is married, a father to 3 children, and is known by his community as a very friendly person.

Initially, Atu joined One Acre Fund in 2018 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Atu plans to invest in a business.

Between the 12 farmers in Atu's Group, a total of 11.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
