Carolyne's Group's story

Pictured above is Carolyne, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 44 years old and has eight children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of ten farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Carolyne is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund, as this means that she is able to make more farmer friends in her community, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Carolyne says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Carolyne will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of four 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 seven solar lights.
