Simon's Group's story

Pictured above is Simon, who as a group leader is representing his group formed by 8 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. He is a father to 5 children and is known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Simon joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since he joined the program, he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to save more money. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Simon plans to send his children to school.

Between the 8 farmers in Simon's Group, a total of 6 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
