Janetria's Group's story

Pictured above is Janetria, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 8 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya. She is a mother to 12 children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual. Initially, Janetria joined One Acre Fund in 2009 because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. 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 harvesting season, Janetria plans to send her children to school. Between the 8 farmers in Janetria's Group, a total of 2.75 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 4 solar lights.
