Ainea's Group's story

Pictured above is Ainea, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 10 farmers in the Matete District of Kenya. Ainea is a father to 12 children and is known by his community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Ainea joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since he joined the program, he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Ainea plans to send his children to school.

Between the 10 farmers in Ainea's Group, a total of 7.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizers received with the loan.
