Adija's Group's story

Pictured above is Adija, often described as an extremely friendly person. She is 46 years old and has five children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Adija is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Adija says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2018, she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Adija will use the profits from this season to buy a goat.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 8.5 acres.
