Elizabeth's Group's story

Elizabeth's Group was formed by 9 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Elizabeth, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 36 years old and has 6 children. Elizabeth has been a farmer for 15 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Elizabeth isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Elizabeth will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Elizabeth's Group will purchase a total of 5 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 4 acres.
