Eunice's Group's story

Eunice is a 40-year-old proud mother of five children. She is a group leader, often described as a very friendly person, and is representing her group of nine farmers in Teso District.

Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, Eunice has noticed that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Eunice described her harvest as very good last year, but she believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Eunice’s Group will be able to plant a total of 3.5 acres of land and purchase a total of eight solar lights.

In this group: Eunice, David, Ieric N, Hellen T, Janet, Mathew, Philex K, Roselyne, Susan
