Bonface's Group's story

Bonface is the group leader of his group in Teso District, and he is representing 11 farmers, including himself. He is married and a proud father of one child. Bonface joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for 5 years.

Like many other farmers, Bonface decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer he will get with this loan, he can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to buy more land to cultivate in.

Bonface's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 6.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 5 solar lights, as, even though Bonface decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
