Ayub's Group's story

Pictured above is Ayub , often described as an extremely resourceful person. He is 56 years old and has 5 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 20 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. Ayub is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Ayub says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2015, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Ayub will use the profits from this season to send his children to school. The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 10.75 acres. 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 5 solar lights.
