Ruth'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.

Ruth's Group's story

Ruth, pictured above, has been a farmer for 19 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 18 farmers in Teso District. She is 29 years old, married and has three children.

Ruth likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2016 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has a large farm group support. Ruth plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Ruth’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 10.75 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 three solar lights.
