Ann's Group's story

Ann is 52 years old and has nine children. She has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Ann is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of eight farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Ann started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2007. She decided to do so because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family. This year she decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader.

Ann’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 5.25 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will purchase a solar light. With this loan, the group will also receive a total of four solar lights.
