Pamela's Group's story

Pamela's Group is formed by 10 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Pamela, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 40 years old and has 5 children. Pamela has been a farmer for 12 years and is often referred to as a very friendly person.

Pamela isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed because she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Pamela will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Pamela's Group will purchase 4 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant 5.5 acres.

In this group: Pamela, Beatrice, Cleophas, Moses , Hellen, Racheal , Sela, Edwin, Andrew , Violet

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
