Jackline's Group's story

Jackline, pictured above, has been a farmer for 16 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 15 farmers in Alego District. She is 37 years old, married, and has four children.

Jackline likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017, and decided to represent her group because she was just proposed by team. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Jackline plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Jackline’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 6.25 acres of land. Some members of the group will also be purchasing solar lights with this loan, so the group will receive a total of three solar lights.
