Richard's Group's story

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

Initially, Richard 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, Richard plans to send his children to school.

Between the 11 farmers in Richard's Group, a total of 13.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. 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 three solar lights.
