Andrew's Group's story

Pictured above is Andrew, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 11 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. He is a father to 8 children, and is known by his community as a very experienced farmer.

Andrew joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since he joined the program, he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Andrew plans to rent more land to cultivate.

The 11 farmers in Andrew's Group will plant 11.25 acres of land using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. The group will also receive 6 solar lights.
