Topista's Group's story

Topista is the group leader in Teso District, and she is representing 7 farmers. Topista joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but she has been a farmer for 10 years.

Like many other farmers, Topista decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. She hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer she will get with this loan, she can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. She plans to use the profits she earns from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

Topista's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 4.25 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights."
