Rael's Group's story

Rael is 37 years old and has three children. She has been a farmer for 15 years and is always said to be a very friendly person. Even though Rael is the only one featured in this picture, she is representing her group of 11 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She started working alongside One Acre Fund in 2012. Rael decided to do so because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family. This year, Rael decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

Rael’s Group is requesting farming inputs to plant a total of 5.5 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will purchase solar lights. With this loan Rael's Group will receive farming inputs and two solar lights.
