Dorothy's Group's story

Dorothy is 60 years old and has two children. She has been a farmer for 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Dorothy is the only one featured in the above picture she is actually representing her group formed by eight farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Dorothy started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013, and decided to do so because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since then, she has seen her life improve; especially in the sense that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community.

Dorothy’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4.75 acres of land. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan the group will also receive one solar light.
