Eliud's Group's story

Pictured above is Eliud, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He is a father to 5 children and is known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Eliud joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has learnt alot from farming training. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Eliud plans to send his children to school.

Between the 12 farmers in Eliud's Group, a total of 13 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
