Joyce'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.

Joyce's Group's story

Joyce is the group leader of her group in Teso District, and she is representing 19 farmers, including herself. Joyce joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but she has been a farmer for 20 years.

Like many other farmers, Joyce decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to earn enough to feed her family. She hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer she will get with this loan, she can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers who have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. She plans to use the profits she earns from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

Joyce's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 11.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of six solar lights.
