Martin's Group's story

Martin is 56 years old and has 12 children. He is a group leader and is representing his group, formed by 10 farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya.

Martin has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2008. This decision was largely a result of his desire to earn enough to feed his family and, although he described his last harvest as good, he believes he could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Martin also decided to purchase a solar light as part of his loan, which he is very excited about as it will allow him to have light during dark hours for his children to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Martin's Group will be able to receive a total of 5 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4.25 acres.
