Kilwake's Group's story

Kilwake is 41 years old and has 4 children. He has been a farmer for 17 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Kilwake is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 8 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Kilwake started working with One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, he has seen his life improving, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community.

Kilwake’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4.75 acres of land.
