Stephen's Group's story

Stephen, pictured above, has been a farmer for nine years, and is now proud to represent his group of 11 farmers in Alego district. He is 31 years old, married and has three children. Stephen likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual.

He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2019 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. Stephen plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a cow. In total, Stephen’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 3.5 acres of land.

In this group: Stephen, Elizabeth, Rosa, Joseph, Jane, Lucy, James, Peter, Florence, Mourice, Margret
