Fransisca's Group's story

Pictured above is Fransisca, often described as an extremely friendly person. She is 52 years old and has six children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Fransisca is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund, which means that she will be able to earn enough to feed her family. That is why she decided to join in the first place. Fransisca says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. She will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.25 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing solar lights, the group will also receive two solar lights.
