Gregory's Group's story

Gregory, featured in the above picture, is representing his farming group formed by 15 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. He is 45 years old and a married father of 4 children, often described as a very reliable person. Although Gregory has been a farmer for more than 20 years, he is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because he really wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Even though he is new to the program, Gregory wanted to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Gregory hopes to be able to invest in a business. With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 9.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 4 solar lights, as, even though Gregory decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
