Saul's Group's story

Pictured above is Saul, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by seven farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. He is a father to eight children and is known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Saul joined One Acre Fund in 2014 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 been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Saul plans to save more money for the future.

Between the seven farmers in Saul's Group, a total of 6.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
