Hellen's Group's story

Hellen's Group is formed by 13 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Hellen, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 44 years old and has 6 children. Hellen has been a farmer for 15 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Hellen isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2017 and has since noticed changes in her life, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Hellen 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 reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Hellen's Group will purchase a total of 5 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 8 acres.
