Jesca's Group's story

Jesca's Group is formed by 11 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Jesca, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 46 years old and has 5 children. Jesca has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Jesca isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since.

This year, Jesca will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Jesca's Group will purchase a total of 4 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5 acres.
