William's Group's story

William, featured in the above picture, is representing his farming group formed by 8 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. He is 35 years old, married and father of 3 children. He is often described as a very reliable person.

Although William has been a farmer for 15 years, he is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because he really wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Even though he is new to the program, William wanted to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, William hopes to be able to send his children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 9 acres of land.
