Lenah's Group's story

Pictured above is lenah, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children and is known by her community as a very friendly person. Initially, lenah joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, lenah plans to save more money for the future. Between the 11 farmers in lenah's Group, a total of 3.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 4 solar lights.
