Colleta's Group's story

Colleta's Group is formed by 16 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Colleta, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 52 years old, is married and has 4 children. Colleta has been a farmer for more than 30 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Colleta isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2014 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has learnt a lot from farming training ever since. She bought cows from the profits that she made. This year, Colleta 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 have an overall improved quality of life.

Using this loan, Colleta's Group will purchase a total of 12 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 9 acres.
