Jemimah's Group's story

Pictured above is Jemimah, who as a group leader is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very resourceful person.

Initially, Jemimah 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 harvesting season, Jemimah plans to send her children to school.

Between the 14 farmers in Jemimah's Group, a total of 9 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 seven solar lights.
