Florence's Group's story

Pictured above is Florence, who is often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 38 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 17 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Florence is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Florence says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Florence will use the profits from this season to repair her home.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 10.25 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan the group will also receive a total of 5 solar lights.
