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


Pyela's Group's story

Pictured above is Pyela, often described as an extremely reliable person. She is 53 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of five farmers in Iringa Distric, Tanzania.

Pyela is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Pyela says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2014, she has learned a lot from farming trainings, which have improved her day-to-day life significantly. Pyela will use the profits from this season to rent more land to cultivate in.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of five acres.

In this group: Pyela, Maulus, Rukia, Scola, Stela


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
