Joice's Group's story

Joice is 40 years old and has four children. She has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very friendly person. Even though Joice is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Joice started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012 and decided to do so because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has been able to feed her family ever since consistently. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

Joice’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 7.25 acres of land. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
