Mathew's Group's story

Pictured above is Mathew, the group leader representing his group formed by 18 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He is a father to seven children and is known in his community as a very hardworking individual.

Mathew joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds possible. Since joining, he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Mathew plans to send his children to school.

Between the 18 farmers in Mathew 's Group, a total of eight acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, one of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light.
