Racheal's Group's story

Pictured above is Racheal, often described as an extremely trustworthy person. She is 57 years old and has 5 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 13 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Racheal is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again. This means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Racheal says that she is happy to have made that decision because since she first joined in 2014, she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Racheal will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

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