Clement's Group's story

This season is not the first that Clement has been working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2016, and although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 10 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Clement is often described by his community as a very experienced farmer and decided to be the one to represent his group because he wanted to gain respect from his community. Like many of his fellow farmers, Clement decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to earn enough to feed his family and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

This loan will not only help Clement but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 8.5 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.
