Florence's Group's story

Florence is a mother to six children and is representing a group of eleven farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Florence joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. 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 cow.

Between the eleven farmers in Florence's group, a total of 5.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, one of the farmers is buying a solar light through the program.
