Ann's Group's story

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

Initially, Ann joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. 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 harvest season, Ann plans to send her children to school.

Between the nine farmers in Ann's Group, a total of 3.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light. With this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
