Jane's Group's story

Jane, pictured above, has been a farmer for 11 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 12 farmers in Mumias District. She is 35 years old, is married, and has 4 children.

Jane likes to think of herself as a very trustworthy person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. Jane plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Jane’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 5.75 acres of land. Given that a member of the group is interested in purchasing a solar light, the group will also receive one solar light.
