Dominica's Group's story

Dominica, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by 10 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. She is 57 years old and a married mother of 3 children. She is often described as a very friendly person.

Although Dominica has been a farmer for more than 20 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Even though she is new to the program, Dominica wanted to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Dominica hopes to be able to buy a goat.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant 12 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 2 solar lights.
