Eclay's Group's story

Eclay, pictured above, has been a farmer for 17 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 11 farmers in Teso District. She is 59 years old and married, and she has 4 children.

Eclay likes to think of herself as a very experienced farmer. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2015, and she decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. She plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a cow.

In total, Eclay’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 7 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan the group will also receive a total of 2 solar lights.
