Florian's Group's story

Florian is 49 years old and has 4 children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very friendly person. Even though Florian is the only one featured in the above picture he is actually representing his group formed by 14 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Florian started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since then, he has seen his life improve; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

Florian’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 13 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 4 solar lights.
