Henry's Group's story

Henry, pictured above, has been a farmer for 16 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 16 farmers in Webuye District. He is 53 years old, is married and has 9 children.

Henry likes to think of himself as a very reliable person. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2015 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. Henry plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, Henry’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4.5 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 8 solar lights.
