Agneta's Group's story

Agneta is a 57-year-old, proud mother of 2 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 11 farmers in Lugari District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2017, Agneta has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Agneta described her last year's harvest as good, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is also very excited to purchase a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light to enable her children to study during dark hours. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Agneta’s Group will be able to plant a total of 10.75 acres of land and purchase a total of 3 solar lights.
