A loan helped to purchase a solar light, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve the harvest of maize.

Rabecca's Group's story

Rabecca's Group is formed by 16 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Rabecca, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 32 years old, married, and has three children. Rabecca has been a farmer for 10 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual. Rabecca isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2014 and since then, has noticed that her life has changed - especially in the sense that she has had more profits from each harvest ever since. This year, Rabecca will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce her consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Using this loan, Rabecca's Group will purchase a total of 14 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of nine acres.
