John's Group's story

John is 51 years old and has nine children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though John is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by ten farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

John started working alongside One Acre Fund in 2009 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 save more money. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

John’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4.25 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 two solar lights.
