Agnes' Group's story

Agnes's Group is formed by 8 farmers in Kimilili District and is being represented by Agnes, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 47 years old and has 8 children. Agnes has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Agnes isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2016 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Agnes 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 reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Agnes's Group will purchase a total of 5 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 4.75 acres.
