Elly's Group's story

Elly is 52 years old and has one child. He has been a farmer for 20 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Elly is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 14 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania.

Elly started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013, and decided to do so because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, he has seen his life improve; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year, he decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community.

Elly’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant 10 acres of land. The group will also receive 3 solar lights.
