Milka's Group's story

Milka is 64 years old and has 10 children. She has been a farmer for more than 30 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Milka is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 15 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Milka started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2011, and decided to do so because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community.

Milka’s group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 13.25 acres of land. 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 five solar lights.
