Joan's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Joan is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2015 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 10 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Joan is often described by her community as a very hardworking individual and decided to be the one to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. Like many of her fellow farmers, Joan decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. She hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to invest in a business.

This loan will not only help Joan but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of seven acres of land.
