Godfrey's Group's story

Pictured above is Godfrey, who, as a group leader, is representing 9 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya. He is a father to 8 children and is known by his community as a very reliable person.

Godfrey joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since he joined the program, he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Godfrey plans to send his children to school.

The 9 farmers in Godfrey's Group will plant 10.75 acres of land using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, the group will receive 3 solar lights.
