Paul's Group's story

Pictured above is Paul, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 62 years old and has 8 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 10 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Paul is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. This is why he decided to join in the first place. Paul says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2017, he has been able to consistently feed his family. This has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Paul will use the profits from this season to save more money for the future.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.5 acres. Some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will receive a total of 2 solar lights.
