Benard's Group's story

Benard is 36 years old and, as the group leader of his group is representing 12 farmers in Teso District. He is looking forward to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year, because this means that he will get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds.

Benard has been a farmer for 18 years and is often described as a very experienced farmer. He decided to represent his group because he wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. With the profits he earns from this coming season, Benard would like to send his children to school.

Between the 12 farmers in Benard’s Group, a total of 6.5 acres will be planted using the inputs from this loan.
