Alfred's Group's story

Pictured above is Alfred, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 20 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He is a father to five children and is known by his community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Alfred joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. 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, Alfred plans to send his children to school.

Between the 20 farmers in Alfred's Group, a total of 10.75 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 2 solar lights.
