Margaret's Group's story

Margaret is 32 years old and has 4 children. She has been a farmer for 10 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Margaret is the only one featured in the above picture she is actually representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Margaret started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2011. She decided to do so because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, she has seen her life improve; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

Margaret’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 9.5 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.
