Henry's Group's story

This season is not the first the that Henry has worked alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2016 and, although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 10 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Henry is often described by his community as a very reliable person and decided to be the one to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community. Like many of his fellow farmers, Henry decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to invest in a business.

This loan will not only help Henry but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.5 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 two solar lights.
