Jason's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Jason is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a couple years now, having joined the program in 2018 and, although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 6 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Jason is often described by his community as a very hardworking individual. He decided to be the one to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community. Like many of his fellow farmers, Jason decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. He hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

This loan will not only help Jason, but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 2.75 acres of land.
