Grace's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Grace is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2016 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of eight farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Grace is often described by her community as a very hardworking individual and decided to be the one to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. Like many of her fellow farmers, Grace decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

This loan will not only help Grace, but also the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of four acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan, the group will also receive a total of one solar light.
