Deborah's Group's story

Pictured above is Deborah, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 5 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. Deborah is known by her community as a very reliable person, and decided to represent her group because wanted to be more active in her community.

Initially, Deborah joined One Acre Fund in 2016 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has learned a lot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Deborah plans to send her children to school.

Between the 5 farmers in Deborah's Group, a total of 1 acre of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
