Charles' Group's story

Charles is 46 years old and has 4 children. He is a group leader and is representing his group formed by 18 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Charles has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2014. This decision was largely a result of his desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Although he described his last harvest as good, he believes he could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Charles also decided to purchase two solar lights as part of his loan, which he is very excited about, as it will allow him to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Charles' Group will be able to receive a total of 6 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 9 acres.
