Peter's Group's story

Peter, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group of 13 farmers in Alego district, Kenya. She is 50 years old and a married mother of two children, often described as a very hard-working individual.

Although Peter has been a farmer for 20 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Even though she is new to the program, Peter wanted to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Peter hopes to be able to send her children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 6.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of three solar lights.
