Angeline's Group's story

Pictured above is Angeline, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She is a mother to five children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Angeline joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has had more profits from each harvest.

With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Angeline plans to save more money for the future.

The 14 farmers in Angeine's Group will plant a total of 7.25 acres of land using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing solar lights, so with this loan, the group will also receive a total of seven solar lights.
