Linus' 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, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Linus' Group's story

Linus's Group is formed by 13 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Linus, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 41 years old, married and has 3 children. Linus has been a farmer for 15 years and is often referred to as a very trustworthy person.

Linus isn’t new to One Acre Fund, he actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed his life has changed; especially in the sense that he has had more profits from each harvest ever since. This year, Linus will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light.

Using this loan, Linus's Group will purchase a total of 3 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 7 acres.
