Janet's Group's story

Janet's Group is formed by 13 farmers in Webuye District and is being represented by Janet, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 40 years old, is married and has 4 children. Janet has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Janet isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2013 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Janet will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Janet's Group will purchase a total of 11 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 4.75 acres.
