Joyce's Group's story

Joyce, pictured above, has been a farmer for 14 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 8 farmers in Teso District. She is 31 years old, married, and has 4 children.

Joyce likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 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. Joyce plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Joyce’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 2.5 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 4 solar lights.
