Peninah's Group's story

Peninah, featured in the above picture, is representing her group formed by six farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya. She is 45 years old and a married mother of four children, often described as a very friendly person. Although Peninah has been a farmer for more than 20 years, she is new to One Acre Fund, and decided to join this year because she really wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Even though she is new to the program, Peninah wanted to represent her group because she likes being a leader. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Peninah hopes to be able to send her children to school. With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4.75 acres of land. , as, even though Peninah decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
