Michael's Group's story

Pictured above is Michael, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 51 years old and has 8 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 13 farmers in the Teso District, Kenya.

Michael is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to earn enough to feed his family, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Michael says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2017, he has been able to save more money, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Michael will use the profits from this season to buy a goat.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 12.75 acres.
