Scovia's Group's story

Scovia is a 31-year-old proud mother of three children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hard-working individual, and is representing her group of 13 farmers in Teso district. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Scovia has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

She described her harvest as good last year but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. Scovia is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have an overall improved quality of life. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to save more money for the future.

With this loan, Scovia’s Group will be able to plant a total of 5 acres of land. Also, the group will receive a total of one solar light.
