Jane's Group's story

Pictured above is Jane, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to 10 children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Jane joined One Acre Fund in 2014 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, Jane plans to send her children to school.

Among the 10 farmers in Jane's Group, a total of 5.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.

Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of four solar lights.
