T_M_Mirere_Rashidomito Group's story

Rashid, pictured above, has been a farmer for 12 years and is now proud to represent his group of 16 farmers in the Teso District. He is 48 years old, married, and has 7 children.

Rashid likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2014 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 increased his profits from each harvest. Rashid plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, Rashid’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 9.75 acres of land. The group will also receive 4 solar lights (some members will be purchasing solar lights).
