Adelide's Group's story
Adelide's Group is formed by 10 farmers in Butere District and is being represented by Adelide, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 45 years old, married, and has 4 children. Adelide has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual. Adelide isn't new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2013 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since. This year, Adelide will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. Using this loan, Adelide's Group will purchase a total of 6 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.5 acres.
