Wilson's Group's story

Wilson, pictured above, has been a farmer for 16 years and is now proud to represent his group of 8 farmers in Lugari District. He is 42 years old, married and has 3 children.

Wilson likes to think of himself as a very experienced farmer. He joined One Acre Fund since 2017 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 consistently feed his family.

He plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school. In total, Wilson’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 19.5 acres of land.

In this group: Wilson, John, Joseph, Emmanuel, Alfred, Naomi, Rosaline, Silas
