Jackson's Group's story
Jackson, pictured above, has been a farmer for 20 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 10 farmers in Webuye District. He is 78 years old, is married and has 12 children. Jackson likes to think of himself as a very reliable person. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2013 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. Jackson plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school. In total, Jackson’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 3 acres of land. Some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, with the group receiving a total of 4 solar lights.
