William's Group's story

Pictured above is William, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 58 years old and has 5 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

William is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, 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. William says that he is happy to have made that decision, because since he first joined in 2015, he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. This has improved his day-to-day life significantly. William 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 8 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 2 solar lights.
