Anne's Group's story

Anne, pictured above, has been a farmer for 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 12 farmers in Webuye District. She is 32 years old, is married and has 5 children.

Anne likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2013 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has learnt a lot from their farming training. Anne plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a cow.

In total, Anne’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 6.5 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan the group will also receive a total of 7 solar lights.

In this group: Anne, George, Josephine, Julias, Julias, Ben, Maurine, Jemima, Christine, Rasoah, Judith, Erick M

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
