Florence's Group's story

Florence, pictured above, has been a farmer for 10 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 10 farmers in Teso District. She is 23 years old, married and has two children.

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

In total, Florence’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 6.5 acres of land. Given that a member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
