Caleb's Group's story

Caleb is 43 years old and has four children. He has been a farmer for 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Caleb is the only one featured in the above picture he is actually representing his group formed by 10 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Caleb started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013, and decided to do so because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, he has seen his life improve, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to gain leadership skills.

Caleb’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 6.5 acres of land. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
