Stephen's Group's story

Stephen is the group leader of his group in Webuye District, and he is representing 11 farmers, including himself. Stephen joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for four years. Like many other farmers, Stephen decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer he will buy with this loan, he can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to invest in a business. Stephen's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 5.5 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of five solar lights.
