Simon's Group's story

This season is not the first one in which Simon is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2018 and, although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he actually represents his group of six farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Simon, often described by his community as a very experienced farmer, decided to be the one to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. Like many of his fellow farmers, he decided to join the One Acre Fund community in order to earn enough to feed his family, and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

This loan will not only help Simon but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4.25 acres of land.
