John's Group's story

John's Group is formed by 14 farmers in Webuye District and is being represented by John, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 39 years old and has 5 children. John has been a farmer for 15 years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

John isn’t new to One Acre Fund, he actually joined the program in 2014 and has since noticed his life has changed, especially in the sense that he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since. This year, John will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but he will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have an overall improved quality of life.

Using this loan, John's Group will purchase a total of 10 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 8.25 acres.
