Arthur's Group's story

Pictured above is Arthur, who, as a group leader, is representing 7 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. He is a father to 6 children and is known by his community as a very trustworthy person.

Initially, Arthur joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since he joined the program, he says that his life has improved, especially because he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Arthur plans to save more money for the future.

The 7 farmers in Arthur's Group will plant 3.5 acres of land using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, the group will also receive a total of 5 solar lights.
