Joseph's Group's story

Joseph's Group is formed by 11 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Joseph, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 49 years old and has 5 children. Joseph has been a farmer for 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Joseph isn’t new to One Acre Fund, he actually joined the program in 2016 and has since noticed his life has changed; especially in the sense that he has learnt a lot from farming trainings ever since. This year, Joseph will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Joseph's Group will purchase a total of 2 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 8.25 acres.
