Costanias' Group's story

Costanias' Group is formed by 4 farmers in Mumias District and is being represented by Costanias, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 45 years old and has 5 children. Costanias has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hard-working individual.

Costanias isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2016 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has a large farm group support ever since. This year, Costanias will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Costanias' Group will purchase a total of 4 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 2.25 acres.
