Gorrety's Group's story

Gorrety, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 10 farmers in Teso District. She is 43 years old, married and has two children.

Gorrety likes to think of herself as a very friendly person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2019 and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has learnt a lot from farming trainings. Gorrety plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Gorrety’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate five acres of land. Given that a member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.

In this group: Gorrety, Josphine, Celestine, Elizabeth, Bena, Everline, Leonard, Leonard, Night, Kennedy

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
