Agnes' Group's story

Agnes, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by 17 farmers in Kilolo North District, Tanzania.

She is 39 years old and a married mother of 4 children, often described as a very hardworking individual.

Although Agnes has been a farmer for 18 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Even though she is new to the program, Agnes wanted to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Agnes hopes to be able to send her children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 16.5 acres of land.

In this group: Agnes, Monica, Jenifas, Meshack, Gelvasi, Vumilia, Roja, Mariam, Aurelia, Vailet, Deusi, Nico, Delfina, Henry, Mabruck, Khadija, Jibu
