Florence's Group's story

Pictured above is Florence. As a group leader, she is representing her group formed by 16 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to 8 children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Florence joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. She says that her life has improved since she joined the program, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Florence plans to send her children to school.

Between the 16 farmers in Florence's Group, a total of 13.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light. With this loan, the group will also receive a total of 7 solar lights.
