Martha's Group's story

Martha's Group consists of four farmers in Kakamega B North district and is being represented by Martha, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 52 years old and has five children. Martha has been a farmer for 13 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Martha isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Martha will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light.

She is very excited about this addition, since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Using this loan, Martha's Group will purchase a total of four solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of three acres.
