Calistus' Group's story

Pictured above is Calistus, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 42 years old and has 5 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 4 farmers in the Chwele District of Kenya.

Calistus is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund because he is able to earn enough to feed his family, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Calistus says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2014, he has been able to consistently feed his family which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Calistus will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 1.25 acres.
