Angeline's Group's story

Angeline's Group is formed by 10 farmers in Mumias District and is being represented by Angeline, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 40 years old and has 6 children. Angeline has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very resourceful person.

Angeline isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Angeline will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition because now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Angeline's Group will purchase a total of 7 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 2.5 acres.
