Ben's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

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

Ben's Group's story

Ben is a 50-year-old proud father of four children. He is a group leader, often described as a very resourceful person, and is representing his group of eight farmers in Teso District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2017, Ben has noticed that he has learnt alot from farming trainings.

Ben described his harvest as good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge his phone. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, Ben’s Group will be able to plant a total of 5.75 acres of land and purchase a total of two solar lights.
