Sela's Group's story

Sela, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group, formed by 10 farmers, in Lugari District, Kenya. She is 40 years old, married and mother to 4 children. Sela is often described as a very reliable person.

Although Sela has been a farmer for 6 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Even though she is new to the program, Sela wanted to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Sela hopes to be able to send her children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 7.5 acres of land.
