Maurice's Group's story

Pictured above is Maurice, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 53 years old and has eight children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of seven farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Maurice 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. Maurice says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2016, he has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Maurice 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 4 acres.
