Mary's Group's story

Mary is the leader of a fourteen-member group of farmers in the Lugari District of Kenya. She is the mother of ten children and is known in her community as a very trustworthy person.

Mary joined the One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to access quality trainings and learn new farming methods. Since she joined the program her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, she plans to buy a cow.

Among the fourteen farmers in Mary's Group, a total of 8.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, group members will use this loan to receive a total of four solar lights.
