Dismas' Group's story

Dismas is 25 years old and is often referred to as a really reliable person. As a group leader, he is representing his group from Webuye District, which consists of 10 farmers, including himself.

Dismas has been a farmer for 10 years, and has worked with One Acre Fund for a while now, having joined for the first time in 2016 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Not only will he get maize seeds and fertilizer with his loan, he will also purchase a solar light in order to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. He decided that he will use the profits he gains from this year’s harvest to invest in a business.

With this loan, Dismas’s Group will receive a total of 7 solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4 acres.

In this group: Dismas, Erness, Everlyne, Geofrrey, Jackson, Joan, Josephine, Peter, Richard, Robert


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
