A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, and a solar light.

Dismas' Group's story

Dismas is the proud 34-year-old father of three children. He is a group leader and often described as a very friendly person. He represents his group of fifteen farmers in the Teso District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2017, Dismas has noticed that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

Dismas described his harvest as good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with the One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also buy a solar light, in addition to fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to reduce his consumption of paraffin and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, the members of Dismas' group will be able to plant a total of 8.75 acres of land and buy a total of two solar lights.
