Maurice's Group's story

Pictured above is Maurice, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 12 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. He is a father to 10 children and is known by his community as a very friendly person.

Initially, Maurice joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to earn enough to send his children to school. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Maurice plans to send his children to school.

Between the 12 farmers in Maurice's Group, a total of 4.75 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 7 solar lights.
