Joselyne's Group's story

Joselyne, featured in the photo above, is representing her farming group of 13 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is 30 years old and a married mother of two children; she is often described as a very experienced farmer.

Although Joselyne has been a farmer for two years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Even though she is new to the program, Joselyne wanted to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Joselyne hopes to be able to save more money for the future.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of six-and-a-half acres of land. They will also receive a total of two solar lights because, even though Joselyne decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
