Resila's Group's story

Resila is the group leader of his group in Teso District, and he is representing nine farmers, including himself. Resila joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for 15 years.

Like many other farmers, Resila decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to earn enough to feed his family. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer he will get with this loan, he can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers who have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

Resila's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 3.5 acres of land. They will also receive one solar light; even though Resila decided not to, one of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
