Irene's Group's story

Irene, pictured above, has been a farmer for 8 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 15 farmers in Teso District. She is 29 years old, married and has 2 children.

Irene likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has learnt a lot from farming training. Irene plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Irene’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4.75 acres of land.

In this group: Irene, Emilly, Christine, Alice, Lecticia, Patrick, Beatrice, Joseph, Grace, Rose, Christine, Resla, Leonita, Oroni, Tophister
