Anne's Group's story

Pictured above is Anne, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Anne 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 harvesting season, Anne plans to send her children to school.

Among the 14 farmers in Anne's Group, a total of 11.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
