Robert's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase two solar lights, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Robert's Group's story

Robert's Group is formed by 13 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Robert, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 35 years old, is married and has four children. Robert has been a farmer for five years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Robert isn’t new to One Acre Fund. He actually joined the program in 2013 and has since noticed his life has changed, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year, Robert will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase two solar lights. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Robert's Group will purchase a total of seven solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.75 acres.
