Jeconia's Group's story

Jeconia's Group is formed by 9 farmers in Alego District and is being represented by Jeconia, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 47 years old and has 6 children. Jeconia has been a farmer for 12 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual. Jeconia isn’t new to One Acre Fund, he actually joined the program in 2016 and has since noticed his life has changed; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year, Jeconia will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study. Using this loan, Jeconia's Group will purchase a total of 5 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 7 acres.
