Peter's Group's story
Pictured above is Peter , who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 9 farmers in Sirisia District, Kenya. He is a father to 10 children and is known by his community as a very friendly person. Initially, Peter joined One Acre Fund in 2009 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Peter plans to send his children to school. Between the 9 farmers in Peter 's Group, a total of 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 3 solar lights.
