Dismas's Group's story

Dismas is 67 years old and has 6 children. He has been a farmer for 9 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Dismas is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 11 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Dismas started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2011, and decided to do so because he wanted to earn enough to send his children to school. Since then, he has seen his life improve, especially in the sense that he has a larger farm support group ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to gain leadership skills.

Dismas’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 6.25 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
