Peter's Group's story

Pictured above is Peter, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 9 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. He is a father to 7 children and is known by his community as a very trustworthy person.

Initially, Peter joined One Acre Fund in 2013 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 save more money. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Peter plans to save more money for the future.

Between the 9 farmers in Peter's Group, a total of 6.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 4 solar lights.
