Grace's Group's story

Pictured above is Grace, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 8 farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya. She is the mother of 8 children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Grace joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Grace plans to send her children to school.

Between the 8 farmers in Grace 's Group, a total of 3.5 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 so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 5 solar lights.
