Paul's Group's story

Pictured above is Paul, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 45 years old and has 5 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 9 farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya.

Paul is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund. This means that he is able to earn enough to feed his family, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Paul says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2017, he has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Paul will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4.5 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 6 solar lights.
