Syprose's Group's story

Syprose's Group is formed by six farmers in Alego District and is being represented by Syprose, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 55 years old and has six children. Syprose has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very friendly person.

Syprose isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Syprose will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have an overall improved quality of life.

Using this loan, Syprose's Group will purchase a total of two solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.25 acres.
