Deogracias' Group's story

Deogracias is the group leader of his group in Teso District, and he is representing 14 farmers, including himself. Deogracias joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for more than 20 years.

Like many other farmers, Deogracias decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to earn enough to send his children to school. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer he will get with this loan, he can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to buy chicken.

Deogracias's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 11.5 acres of land.
