Lidia's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizers for the coming harvesting season.

Lidia's Group's story

Pictured above is Lidia, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by six farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. She is a mother to nine children and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Lidia joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has learned a lot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Lidia plans to buy chicken.

Among the six farmers in Lidia's Group, a total of eight acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizers 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.
