Jackson's Group's story

Pictured above is Jackson, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 56 years old and has six children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of eight farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Jackson is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Jackson says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2017, he has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Jackson will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.75 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 two solar lights.
