Winnie's Group's story

Winnie's Group is formed by 15 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Winnie, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 24 years old, is married and has 2 children. Winnie has been a farmer for 8 years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Winnie 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 been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Winnie 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, because now she will be able to have an overall improved quality of life.

Using this loan, Winnie's Group will purchase a total of 7 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 8 acres.
