Mourine's Group's story

Mourine, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by 9 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She is 32 years old and a married mother of 3 children, and is often described as a very friendly person.

Although Mourine has been a farmer for 6 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, Mourine wanted to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Mourine hopes to be able to send her children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 2 acres of land.Even though Mourine decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will also be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
