Jasca'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, as well as a solar light.

Jasca's Group's story

Jasca's Group is formed by 12 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Jasca, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 38 years old and has 6 children. Jasca has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very experienced farmer.

Jasca isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2016 and has since noticed her life changing; especially in the sense that she has learned a lot from farming trainings. This year, Jasca will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to study.

Using this loan, Jasca's Group will purchase a total of 4 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 7.5 acres.
