Luke'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 gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Luke's Group's story

Luke, pictured above, has two children and is always described as a very friendly person, which is why he was selected to become the group leader of this group. Luke is representing his group of 14 farmers from Teso district and is happy to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

Luke has been a farmer for six years and, in order to make more farmer friends in his community, decided to join the One Acre Fund program this season. His loan will not only include farming inputs, but also a solar light which he is very happy to be getting as that means he will now reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this coming season, Luke is planning to invest in a business.

A total of 7.5 acres will be planted by Luke's Group and between them they will receive a total of 4 solar lights.
