Stanley's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Stanley is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2015, and, although he is the only person featured in the photo above, he is actually representing his group of 17 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Stanley is often described by his community as a very hardworking individual and decided to be the one to represent his group because he wanted to gain leadership skills. Like many of his fellow farmers, Stanley decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to quality training and new farming methods. He hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to invest in a business.

This loan will not only help Stanley but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 8.75 acres of land. 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 2 solar lights.
