Fridah's Group's story

Fridah is a 51-year-old proud mother of four children. She is a group leader, often described as a very reliable person, and is representing her group of nine farmers from Mumias district.

Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Fridah has noticed that she has had more profits from each harvest. Fridah described her harvest as poor last year but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing two solar lights apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to repair her home.

With this loan, Fridah’s Group will be able to plant a total of 4.25 acres of land and purchase a total of seven solar lights.
