Christine's Group's story

Christine is 40 years old and has seven children. She has been a farmer for 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Christine is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Christine started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2011, and decided to do so because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has had more profits from each harvest ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

Christine’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 7.5 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 four solar lights.
