Jackline's Group's story

Jackline, pictured above, has been a farmer for eight years, and is now proud to represent her group of eight farmers in Alego District. She is 43 years old, married and has four children.

Jackline likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2016 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Jackline plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Jackline’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 8.5 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 one solar light.

In this group: Jackline, Mary, Celestine, Jackline, Dedacus, James, Lucas, Paskalia

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
