Erastus' Group's story

Erastus is 42 years old and has two children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Erastus is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 12 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Erastus started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago in 2014, and decided to do so because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, he has seen his life improve; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader.

Erastus’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 14.25 acres of land.
