Leonard's Group's story

Leonard, pictured above, has been a farmer for 15 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 13 farmers in Lugari District. He is 35 years old, married, and has three children.

Leonard likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. Leonard plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, Leonard’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 9.5 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 a total of 2 solar lights.

In this group: Leonard, Alex, Dauke , Jane , Isaac, Kennedy, Susan, Benson, Anne, Sarah, Petronilah, Robai, Janet

This loan is special because:
