David's Group's story

David, pictured above, has been a farmer for 12 years, and is now proud to represent his group of seven farmers in Teso District. He is 30 years old, married and has three children.

David likes to think of himself as a very friendly person. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2014 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. David plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, David’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 2.75 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 seven solar lights.
