Nofia's Group's story

Pictured above is Nofia, often described as an extremely resourceful person. She is 50 years old and has 7 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 7 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Nofia is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that she is able to make more farmer friends in her community, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Nofia says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2014, she has had a large farm group support, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Nofia will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4 acres. Some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan. The group will receive a total of one solar light.
