Dorice's Group's story

Pictured above is Dorice, who as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 9 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to 6 children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Dorice joined One Acre Fund in 2014 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 a large farm group support.

With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Dorice plans to send her children to school. Between the 9 farmers in Dorice's Group, a total of 6.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seed and fertilizer received with the loan.
