Margaret's Group's story

Pictured above is Margaret, often described as an extremely reliable person. She is 36 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 14 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Margaret is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Margaret says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Margaret 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 6.25 acres.
