Everlyne's Group's story

Everlyne's Group is formed by eight farmers in Kimilili District and is being represented by Everlyne, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 32 years old and has five children. Everlyne has been a farmer for nine years and is often referred to as a very resourceful person.

Everlyne isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2016. She has noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Everlyne will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge her phone.

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