Agnes' Group's story

Pictured is Agnes who, as group leader, is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Kakamega B (North) district, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very friendly person.

Initially, Agnes joined One Acre Fund in 2012, because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Agnes plans to buy chicken.

Among the 12 farmers in Agnes's Group, a total of 3.25 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 3 solar lights.
