Violet's Group's story

Violet, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by 12 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. She is 30 years old and a married mother of three children. She is often described as a very hardworking individual.

Although Violet has been a farmer for four years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Even though she is new to the program, Violet wanted to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Violet hopes to be able to buy a cow.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 3.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of four solar lights, as, even though Violet decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
