Divina's Group's story

Pictured above is Divina, 48 years old and has 6 children. She is often described as an extremely hardworking individual. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 9 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Divina is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund. This means that she is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Divina says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family. This has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Divina will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4.25 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 4 solar lights.
