Jane's Group's story

Pictured above is Jane, often described as an extremely hard-working individual. She is 42 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of ten farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is married and has four children.

Jane is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as it means that she is able to get the best-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Jane says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Jane will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4.25 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
