Jane's Group's story

Jane, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group, formed by 9 farmers, in Lugari District, Kenya. She is 47 years old, married and a mother of 3 children, often described as a very friendly person.

Although Jane has been a farmer for 4 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Even though she is new to the program, Jane wanted to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Jane hopes to be able to send her children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 9.75 acres of land.
