John's Group's story

John, pictured above, has been a farmer for 16 years. He is now proud to represent his group of 17 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District. He is 45 years old, married and has 3 children.

John likes to think of himself as a very experienced farmer. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2015. He decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to save more money. John plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, John’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 12.5 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 6 solar lights.
