Everlyne's Group's story

Pictured above is Everlyne, who as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known in her community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Everlyne 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 consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvest season, she plans to send her children to school.

Between the 10 farmers in Everlyne's Group, a total of 5.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan the group will also receive one solar light.
