Irine's Group's story

Pictured above is Irine, often described as an extremely reliable person. She is 32 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 7 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Irine is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Irine says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Irine will use the profits from this season to buy chicken.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 3 acres. Given that one member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 1 solar light.
