Deffin'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, as well as a solar light.

Deffin's Group's story

Deffin's Group is formed by 14 farmers in Teso District, and it is represented by Deffin, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 42 years old and she has 5 children.
Deffin has been a farmer for 13 years, and she is often referred to as a very friendly person.

Deffin isn’t new to One Acre Fund: she actually joined the program in 2018, and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since.

This year, Deffin will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but she will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition, since now she will be able to have light during the night and she will have somewhere to charge her phone.

Using this loan, Deffin's Group will purchase a total of 5 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 9 acres.
