Carolyne's Group's story

Carolyne is 40 years old and has six children. She is a group leader, representing her group formed by eight farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Carolyne has been farming with One Acre Fund for six years, having joined the program in 2011. This decision was largely as a result of her desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods and, although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Carolyne also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Carolyne's Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of five acres as well as a total of five solar lights.
