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

Esnas' Group's story

Esnas, pictured above, has been a farmer for 10 years and is now proud to represent her group of 12 farmers in Teso District. She is 38 years old and married and has five children.

Esnas likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2013 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. Esnas plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy more land to cultivate.

In total, Esnas’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 6 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of seven solar lights.
