Remijusi's Group's story

Pictured above is Remijusi, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 11 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. He is a father to nine children and is known by his community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Remijusi joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since he joined the program, he says that his life has improved, especially because he has learned a lot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Remijusi plans to repair his home

Among the 11 farmers in Remijusi's Group, a total of 13 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
