Julias' Group's story

Julias is the group leader of her group in Mumias District, and she is representing 12 farmers, including herself. Julias joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but she has been a farmer for 20 years. Like many other farmers, Julias decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. She hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer she will get with this loan, she can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. She plans to use the profits she earns from this year’s harvest to send her children to school. Julias's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 6 acres of land.However, Some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package. They will receive a total of 3 solar lights.
