Alice's Group's story

Alice's Group is formed by 8 farmers in Alego District and is being represented by Alice, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 46 years old and has 6 children. Alice has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Alice isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2019 and has since noticed her life has changed, and she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Alice will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Alice's Group will purchase a total of 4 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 3.25 acres.
