Dina's Group's story

Pictured above is Dina, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 32 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of seven farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is married and has three children.

Dina is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this 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. Dina says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family. This has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Dina will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 3.5 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.
