Joan'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 a solar light and gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Joan's Group's story

Joan, pictured above, has 3 children and is always described as a very friendly person, which is why she was selected to become the group leader of her group. Joan is representing her group of 9 farmers in Teso District and is happy to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

Joan has been a farmer for 15 years and, in order to have access to the best seed prices, she decided to join the One Acre Fund program this season. Her loan will not only include farming inputs but also a solar light, which she is very happy to be getting as that means she will now have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study. With the profits from this coming season, Joan is planning to send her children to school.

A total of 3.75 acres will be planted by Joan's Group, and between them they will receive a total of 3 solar lights.
