T_M_Alomodoi_Valentine Group's story

Pictured above is Valentine, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 61 years old and, as a group leader, he is representing his group of 13 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Valentine is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that he is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Valentine says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2013, he has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Valentine will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 7.25 acres. 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 11 solar lights.
