Magret's Group's story

Magret, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and she is now proud to represent her group of 10 farmers in Alego District. She is 62 years old, married, and has three children.

Magret likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working with One Acre Fund since 2016, and she decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Magret plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Magret's Group will receive inputs to cultivate seven acres of land. Given that some members of the group will be purchasing solar lights, the group will also receive two solar lights.
