Busolo's Group's story

Busolo is 60 years old and is often referred to as a really hardworking individual. As a group leader, he is representing his group in Kimilili District, formed by nine farmers, including himself.

Busolo has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and has worked with One Acre Fund for a while now, having joined for the first time in 2017 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Not only will he get maize seeds and fertilizer with his loan, but also 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 buy a cow.

With this loan, Busolo’s Group will receive a total of 7 solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4.25 acres.

In this group: Busolo, Getrude, Wilkyster, Alex, Emily, Richard, Brian, Enock, Grace


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
