Joseph's Group's story

Joseph, group leader, represents 11 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He's a father of eight and known by his community as a very experienced farmer.

He joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since, his life has improved, especially from more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Joseph plans to buy more land to cultivate.

Between the farmers in Joseph's Group, a total of 8½ 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 with this loan.
