Josphine's Group's story

Pictured above is Josphine, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by eight farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Josphine joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Josphine plans to send her children to school.

Among the eight farmers in Josphine's Group, a total of 4.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan the group will also receive one solar light.
