Moses' Group's story

Moses is pictured above. As group leader, he is representing his group formed by 14 farmers in the Chwele District of Kenya. He is a married father of 3 children and he is known by his community as a very experienced farmer.

Moses joined One Acre Fund in 2008 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. He says that his life has improved since he joined the program, especially because he has learned a lot from the farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Moses plans to send his children to school.

Between the 14 farmers in Moses's Group, a total of 8.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer purchased with the loan. Some of the farmers in the group will purchase solar lights; with this loan, the group will acquire a total of 4 solar lights.
