Jane's Group's story
Jane, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by 11 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya. She is 36 years old and a married mother of 3 children, often described as a very hardworking individual. Although Jane has been a farmer for 11 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Even though she is new to the program, Jane wanted to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Jane hopes to be able to send her children to school. With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 3 acres of land.
