Pili's Group's story

Pictured above is Pili, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by nine farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. She is a mother to five children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Pili joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has learnt a lot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Pili plans to save more money for the future.

Between the nine farmers in Pili's Group, a total of 4.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
