Henry's Group's story

Henry's Group is formed by 9 farmers in Alego District, and is being represented by Henry, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 59 years old and has 6 children. Henry has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very friendly person.

Henry isn’t new to One Acre Fund; he actually joined the program in 2017, and has since noticed that his life has changed, especially in the sense that he has learned a lot from farming trainings ever since. This year, Henry will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but he will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition, since now he will be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Henry's Group will purchase a total of 2 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 6.5 acres.
