Barnabas' Group's story

Barnabas's Group is formed by 9 farmers in Alego District and is being represented by Barnabas, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 79 years old and has 8 children. Barnabas has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Barnabas isn’t new to One Acre Fund, as he actually joined the program in 2017 and has since noticed that his life has changed, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family. This year, Barnabas 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 an overall improved quality of life.

Using this loan, Barnabas's Group will purchase a total of 6 solar lights, and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 8 acres.
