Mercy's Group's story

Mercy is 24 years old and is often referred to as a really friendly person. As a group leader, she is representing her group in Teso District, formed by nine farmers, including herself.

Mercy has been a farmer for 19 years and has worked with One Acre Fund for a while now, having joined for the first time in 2019 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Not only will she get maize seeds and fertilizer with her loan, but also a solar light in order to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. She decided that she will use the profits she gains from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

With this loan, Mercy’s Group will receive a total of two solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 5.5 acres.
