A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Leonard's Group's story

Leonard is a 25-year-old proud father of three children. He is a group leader, often described as a very friendly person, and is representing his group of 13 farmers in Teso District.

Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Leonard has noticed that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

Leonard described his harvest as good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund.

Leonard is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study.

With the profits from this season’s harvest, Leonard plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, Leonard’s Group will be able to plant a total of 10.5 acres of land and purchase a total of three solar lights.
