Francis' Group's story

Francis is 57 years old and has 11 children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very reliable person. Even though Francis is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 9 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Francis started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2011, and decided to do so because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, he has seen his life improve; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

Francis’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 5.75 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 2 solar lights.
