Columba's Group's story

Columba, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 7 farmers in Teso District. She is 35 years old, married and has 4 children.

Columba describes herself as a very reliable person. She has been working with One Acre Fund since 2015 and decided to represent her group, because she wanted to be more active in her community. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Columba plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Columba’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4.25 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights using this loan.
