Hildergard's Group's story

Hildergard is 52 years old and has 4 children. She has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very reliable person. Even though Hildergard is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 6 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Hildergard started working alongside One Acre Fund in 2012. She decided to do so because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. She has seen her life improve since joining, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family. This year, she decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community.

Hildergard’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so the group will also receive a total of 2 solar lights.
