Joseph's Group's story

Joseph is a proud 56-year-old father of 9 children. He is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing his group of 16 farmers in Butere District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2012, Joseph has noticed that he has learned a lot from farming trainings. Joseph described his harvest as good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also be purchasing two solar lights, apart from fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to reduce his consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to save more money for the future. With this loan, Joseph’s Group will be able to plant a total of 8 acres of land and purchase a total of 12 solar lights.
