A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Yovitha's Group's story

Yovitha is 49 years old and has two children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania.

Yovitha has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2013. This decision was largely a result of her desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and, although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund.

Yovitha also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Yovitha's Group will be able to receive a total of three solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 12 acres.
