Jacklyne's Group's story

Pictured above is Jacklyne, who, as a group leader, is representing 10 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Jacklyne joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to get the best-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. 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, Jacklyne plans to send her children to school.

The 10 farmers in Jacklyne's Group will plant 4 acres of land using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. The group will also receive 6 solar lights.
