Felista's Group's story

Felista has been a farmer for 18 years and is now proud to represent her group of six farmers in Iringa District. She's 42 years old, married and has four children.

She likes to think of herself as very hardworking. She's been working with One Acre Fund (OAF) since 2015 and decided to represent her group because she wants to spread the story of OAF farmers. Felista says that being part of the OAF community has meant she's been able to consistently feed her family.

She plans to use profits from this coming season to buy more land to cultivate. In total, Felista’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 3½ acres of land.
