Christine's Group's story

Pictured above is Christine, who as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. She is a mother to five children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Christine joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has learned a lot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Christine plans to send her children to school.

Between the 12 farmers in Christine's Group, a total of 8 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 4 solar lights.
