Catherene's Group's story

Catherene, pictured above, has been a farmer for 13 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 7 farmers in Teso District. She is 34 years old, married and has 3 children.

Catherene likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. 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. Catherene plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Catherene’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4.75 acres of land.

In this group: Catherene, Gaspa Drupia, Patrick, Edwin, Beatrice Amuse, Violet, Imoite
