A loan helped to purchase a solar light and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.
Humphrey's Group's story
Humphrey is a 42-year-old proud father of 8 children. He is often described as a very reliable person, and is representing his group of 15 farmers in Teso District as group leader. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, Humphrey has noticed that he has been able to save more money. Humphrey described his harvest as very good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to have an overall improved quality of life. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school. With this loan, Humphrey’s Group will be able to plant a total of 7.5 acres of land and purchase a total of 7 solar lights.
