Christopher's Group's story

Pictured above is Christopher, often described as an extremely reliable person. He is 72 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 6 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Christopher is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund, as this means that he is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place.

Christopher says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2015, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly.

Christopher will use the profits from this season to repair his home.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.25 acres.
