Nevele's Group's story

Nevele is 38 years old and has 4 children. She has been a farmer for 10 years and is always said to be a very reliable person. Even though Nevele is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 4 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. Nevele started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013, and decided to do so because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, she has seen her life improve; especially in the sense that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader. Nevele’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 6 acres of land.
