Eunice's Group's story

Eunice's Group is formed by 10 farmers in Teso district, and is being represented by Eunice, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 43 years old and has six children. Eunice has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is often referred to as a very resourceful person.

Eunice isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2017 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has had more profits from each harvest ever since.

This year, Eunice 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, Eunice's Group will purchase a total of five solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.5 acres.

In this group: Eunice , Janetry, Centrine, Rose , Mary, Briget, Protus, Josephine, Violet, Selina

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
