Eunice's Group's story

Eunice is the leader of Eunice's Group, which consists of eleven farmers in Matete District. Eunice, 40 years old, is married and has four children. She has been a farmer for more than twenty years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Eunice 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 gained a lot of respect in her community ever since. This year, Eunice 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 since now she will be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge her phone.

Using this loan, Eunice 's Group will purchase a total of nine solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 2.5 acres.
