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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Joyce's Group's story

Joyce, pictured above, has been a farmer for 19 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 16 farmers in Teso District. She is 42 years old, married, and has 2 children.

Joyce likes to think of herself as a very trustworthy person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2019 and decided to represent her group because she was proposed by the team. 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 buy a cow.

In total, Joyce’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 8.25 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 1 solar light.
