Evaline's Group's story

Pictured above is Evaline, often described as an extremely reliable person. She is 41 years old and has five children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Evaline 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. Evaline says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2019, she has learnt a lot from farming trainings, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Evaline will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 7.25 acres.
