Caro's Group's story

Caro is 40 years old and has five children. She has been a farmer for 15 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Caro is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Caro started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2009, and decided to do so because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community.

Caro’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of five 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 five solar lights.
