Jacline's Group's story

Pictured above is Jacline, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 48 years old and has seven children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Jacline is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. She says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2013, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Jacline will use the profits from this season to save more money for the future.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.25 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 four solar lights.
