Theopista's Group's story

Pictured above is Theopista. As a group leader, he is representing his group formed by 14 farmers in the Iringa District, Tanzania. He is a father to 9 children and is known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Theopista joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Theopista plans to save more money for the future.

Between the 14 farmers in Theopista's Group, a total of 15 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 5 solar lights.
