Samwel's Group's story

Pictured above is Samwel, often described as an extremely friendly person. He is 53 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 9 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Samwel is returning to work with One Acre Fund again this season, as this means that he is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Samwel says that he is happy to have made that decision, because since he first joined in 2016, he has been able to consistently feed his family. This has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Samwel will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 9 acres.
