Grace's Group's story

Grace is a 38-year-old proud mother of three children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 11 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Grace has noticed that she has gained a lot of respect in her community.

Grace described her harvest as poor last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing two solar lights, in addition to fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge her phone. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Grace’s Group will be able to plant a total of 5.5 acres of land and purchase a total of nine solar lights.
