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 a solar light and increase cultivation of maize.

Robert's Group's story

Robert, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 14 farmers in Teso District. He is 45 years old, married, and has 6 children.

Robert likes to think of himself as a very experienced farmer. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2013 and decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. Robert plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, Robert’s group will receive inputs to cultivate 7.75 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
