Meshack's Group's story

Meshack, pictured above, has been a farmer for nine years, and is now proud to represent his group of 16 farmers in Teso District. He is 30 years old, married and has two children.

Meshack likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2015, and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

Meshack plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a cow.

In total, Meshack’s Group will receive enough farming inputs to cultivate 9.75 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 five solar lights.

In this group: Meshack, Pius, Edwin, Francisca, Charles, Lilian, Moses, Martin, Lonah , Jane, Beatrice , Obed, Dinah , Margret , Grace, Stella

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
