Peter's Group's story

Peter is 37 years old and has 3 children. He has been a farmer for 20 years and is always said to be a very reliable person. Even though Peter is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group, formed by 12 farmers, in Lugari District, Kenya.

Peter started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, he has seen his life improve, especially as he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

Peter’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 6.25 acres of land. 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.
