Christine's Group's story

Pictured above is Christine, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya. She is a mother to 7 children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual. Initially,Christine joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to earn enough to send her children to school. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has learnt alot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season,Christine plans to save more money for the future. Between the 13 farmers in Christine's Group, a total of 5.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. 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 7 solar lights.
