Anne's Group's story

Anne is 31 years old and has 3 children. She has been a farmer for 6 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Anne is the only one featured in the above picture she is actually representing her group formed by 7 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Anne started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013, and decided to do so because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, she has seen her life improve; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community.

Anne’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4.25 acres of land. 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 2 solar lights.
