Ruth's Group's story

Ruth is a 35-year-old proud mother of 2 children. She is a group leader who is often described as a very hardworking individual, and she is representing her group of 11 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2017, Ruth has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Ruth described her harvest last year as good, but she believes she can have an even better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to reduce her consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Ruth’s Group will be able to plant a total of 4.5 acres of land and purchase a total of 7 solar lights.
