Topister's Group's story

Pictured above is Topister, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 44 years old and has six children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of eight farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Topister is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that she is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why she decided to join in the first place.

Topister says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has learned a lot from farming trainings, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Topister will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of nine acres. Given that a member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
