Andrew's Group's story

Andrew is a 46-year-old proud father of five children. He is a group leader, often described as a very friendly person, and is representing his group of 11 farmers in Teso District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, Andrew has noticed that he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Andrew described his harvest as good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to have an overall improved quality of life. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, Andrew’s group will be able to plant a total of 7.5 acres of land and purchase a total of three solar lights.
