Magdalyne's Group's story

Pictured above is Magdalyne, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by nine farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to 10 children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Magdalyne joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Magdalyne plans to repair her home.

Among the nine farmers in Magdalyne'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 one solar light.
