Stephen's Group's story

Stephen, pictured above, has been a farmer for 10 years. He is now proud to represent his group of 8 farmers in Teso District. He is 48 years old, married, and has 2 children.

Stephen likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. Stephen plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a goat.

In total, Stephen’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 3.25 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, the group will also receive 1 solar light with this loan.
