Margaret's Group's story

Margaret, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than seven years, and is now proud to represent her group of 13 farmers in Teso District. She is 27 years old, married and has two children.

Margaret likes to think of herself as a very experienced farmer. 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 had a healthier life due to better nutrition. Margaret plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Margaret’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 5.25 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 seven solar lights.
