Joshua's Group's story

Pictured above is Joshua, who is often described as an extremely hard-working individual. He is 71 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 11 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Joshua is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to earn enough to feed his family, which is why he decided to join in the first place.

Joshua says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2018, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Joshua will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 10 acres.
