Zebedayo's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Zebedayo is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2018.

Although Zebedayo is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 10 farmers in the Wanging ombe District, Tanzania.

Zebedayo is often described by his community as a very experienced farmer and he decided to be the one to represent his group because he likes being a leader.

Like many of his fellow farmers, Zebedayo decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to buy chickens.

This loan will not only help Zebedayo, but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 11.5 acres of land.
