William's Group's story

William's Group is formed of six farmers in Alego District and is represented by William, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 61 years old and has six children. William has been a maize farmer for six years and is often referred to as a very resourceful person.

William isn’t new to One Acre Fund; he actually joined the program in 2017 and has seen his life change, especially since he has been able to consistently feed his family. This year he will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan but will also buy a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have light during the night and a way to charge his phone.

Using this loan, William's Group will buy one solar light (William’s) and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 3.5 acres.
