Hellen's Group's story

Hellen, pictured above, has been a farmer for 17 years and is now proud to represent her group of 10 farmers in Alego District. She is 33 years old, married, and has four children.

Hellen likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Hellen plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Hellen’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate five 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 two solar lights.
