Cleopa's Group's story

Cleopa, pictured above, has been a farmer for four years and is now proud to represent his group of 20 farmers in Wanging ombe District. He is 39 years old, married and has four children.

Cleopa likes to think of himself as a very reliable person. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to save more money. Cleopa plans to use the profits from this coming season to invest in a business.

In total, Cleopa’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 30.5 acres of land.

In this group: Cleopa, Ester, Eva, Frolida, Lucy, Freda, Zipola, Andrew, Anamary, Zawadi, Niza, Nuru, Roida, Nelson, Dorisi, Roselina, Juliana, Sela, Abedy, Isaya
