Stephen's Group's story

Pictured above is Stephen, who, as a group leader, is representing 15 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya. He is a father to 8 children and is known by his community as a very reliable person.

Stephen joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since he joined the program, his life has improved, especially because he has had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Stephen plans to send his children to school.

The 15 farmers in Stephen's Group will plant 7 acres of land using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. The group will also receive one solar light.
