Agnetta's Group's story

Pictured above is Agnetta, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Agnetta joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Agnetta plans to send her children to school.

Between the 14 farmers in Agnetta's Group, a total of 11.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of nine solar lights.
