A loan helped to gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Joyce's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Joyce is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2017 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 10 farmers in Wanging ombe District, Tanzania.

Joyce is often described by her community as a very friendly person and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader. Like many of her fellow farmers, Joyce decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. She hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to repair her home.

This loan will not only help Joyce but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant 12 acres of land.
