George's Group's story

This season is not the first one that George is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2015.

Although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 11 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

George is often described by his community as a very hardworking individual and decided to be the one to represent his group because he likes being a leader.

Like many of his fellow farmers, George decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to earn enough to feed his family. He hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

This loan will not only help George but the whole group, which will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.5 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 3 solar lights.
