Veronica'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.

Veronica's Group's story

Veronica, pictured above, has been a farmer for 12 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 13 farmers in Teso District. She is 29 years old, married and has three children.

Veronica likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 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 been able to consistently feed her family. Veronica plans to use the profits from this coming season to save more money for the future.

In total, Veronica’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 5.25 acres of land. Given that one member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
