Michael's Group's story

Michael is 29 years old and has 2 children. He has been a farmer for 8 years and is always said to be a very trustworthy person. Even though Michael is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 15 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Michael started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2011, and decided to do so because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, he has seen his life improve; especially in the sense that he has been able to save more money. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

Michael’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 10.75 acres of land. 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.
