Juliet's Group's story
Pictured above is Juliet, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 9 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children and is known by her community as a very reliable person. Initially, Juliet 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, Juliet plans to buy a cow. Between the 9 farmers in Juliet's Group, a total of 7 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
