Nereya's Group's story

Nereya is 50 years old and has two children. She has been a farmer for 19 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer.

Even though Nereya is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by five farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Nereya started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family.

Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

Nereya’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 2.75 acres of land. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
