Eglay's Group's story

Pictured above is Eglay, often described as an extremely resourceful person. She is 56 years old and has eight children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of six farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Eglay is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Eglay says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Eglay will use the profits from this season to save more money for the future.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 2.5 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
