Selina_Teso Group's story

Pictured above is Selina, who as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 15 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to five children and is known in her community as a very resourceful person.

Initially, Selina joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to save more money. With the profits from the coming harvest season she plans to buy a goat.

Between the 15 farmers in Selina's Group, a total of 7.25 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 two solar lights.
