Peter's Group's story

Peter is a 46-year-old proud father of 6 children. He is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing his group of 10 farmers in Sirisia District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, Peter has noticed that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

Peter 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 light during dark hours for his children to be able to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, Peter’s Group will be able to plant a total of 6.25 acres of land and purchase a total of 4 solar lights.
