Eunice_Sambut_Lugari Group's story

Eunice, pictured above, has been a farmer for 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 14 farmers in Lugari District. She is 49 years old, married and has four children.

Eunice likes to think of herself as a very trustworthy person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018, and decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Eunice plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Eunice’s Group will receive enough farming inputs to plant 15 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 three solar lights.

In this group: Eunice, Rodah, Caroline, Claire, Felix, Jenifer, Josphine, Jane, Margaret, Monicah, Reuben, Nicholas, Sarah, Sophia

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
