Matias' Group's story

This season is not the first one that Matias is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2017.

Although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of nine farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania.

Matias is often described by his community as a very hardworking individual. He decided to be the one to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

Like many of his fellow farmers, Matias decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to earn enough to feed his family. He hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to save more money for the future.

This loan will not only help Matias but the whole group, which will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 7 acres of land.
