Charles' Group's story

Pictured above is Charles, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 45 years old and has 10 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 4 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Charles is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Charles says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2017, he has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Charles will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 0.5 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
