Leonard'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.

Leonard's Group's story

Leonard, pictured above, has been a farmer for 16 years and is now proud to represent his group of 13 farmers in Teso District. He is 40 years old, married, and has four children.

Leonard likes to think of himself as a very friendly person. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2016 and decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

Leonard plans to use the profits from this coming season to save more money for the future.

In total, Leonard’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 11.25 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 one solar light.
