Bisantsio's Group's story
Bisantsio is 56 years old and, as the group leader of his group, he is representing 9 farmers in Teso District. He is looking forward to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year, as this means he will have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Bisantsio has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often described as a very hardworking individual. He decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. With the profits he earns from this coming season, Bisantsio would like to save more money for the future. Between the 9 farmers in Bisantsio’s Group, a total of 6.75 acres will be planted using the inputs from this loan and purchase a total of 8 solar lights.
