Dinah's Group's story

Dinah is the group leader of her group in the Lugari District, and she is representing 7 farmers, including herself. Dinah joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but she has been a farmer for 16 years.

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

Dinah's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 5 acres of land and also purchase 2 solar lights.
