Wafula's Group's story

Wafula, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 13 farmers in Kakamega North District. He is 52 years old, is married, and has 6 children.

Wafula likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2014, and he decided to represent his group because he wanted to spread the story of the One Acre Fund farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has allowed him to learn a lot from farming training. Wafula plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, Wafula’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 7 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 5 solar lights.

In this group: Wafula, Atanas, Violet N, Collin, Getrude, Bonface, Roselyne, Alice, Ernest, Brenda, Ernest W, Salome, Wyliffee
