Benard's Group's story
Benard , pictured above, has been a farmer for 10 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 19 farmers in Teso District. He is 28 years old, married and has 3 children. Benard likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and decided to represent his group because he was just proposed by team. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. Benard plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school. In total, Benard ’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 16 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 a total of 2 solar lights.
