Linet's Group's story

Linet is a 47-year-old proud mother with 4 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very resourceful person, and is representing her group of 9 farmers in Teso District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2017, Linet has noticed that she has been able to save more money.

Linet described her harvest as excellent last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, in addition to fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to buy a cow.

With this loan, Linet’s Group will be able to plant a total of 3.25 acres of land and purchase a total of 3 solar lights.
