Jane's Group's story

Jane's Group is formed by 12 farmers in Alego District, and is being represented by Jane, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 51 years old and has 8 children. Jane has been a farmer for 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Jane isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2015, and has since noticed that her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Jane 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, as now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Jane's Group will purchase a total of 6 solar lights and will use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 7 acres.
