Julius' Group's story

Julius, featured in the above picture, is representing his farming group formed by nine farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. He is 41 years old and a married father of four children, often described as a very experienced farmer.

Although he has been a farmer for five years, he is new to One Acre Fund, and decided to join this year because he really wanted to make more farmer friends in his community. Even though he is new to the program, Julius wanted to represent his group because he likes being a leader. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, he hopes to be able to send his children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 10 acres of land.
