Michael's Group's story

Michael is 59 years old and has four children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Michael is the only one featured in the above picture he is actually representing his group formed by 11 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Michael started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2014, and decided to do so because he wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since then, he has seen his life improve; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

Michael’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 5 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
