Josephat's Group's story

Josephat, pictured above, has been a farmer for 18 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 13 farmers in Teso District. He is 61 years old, married, and has two children.

Josephat likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. Josephat plans to use the profits from this coming season to repair his home.

In total, Josephat’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4.75 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.
