Selly's Group's story

Pictured above is Selly, who, as group leader, is representing her group of 5 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is the mother of 6 children and is known in her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Selly joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to gain access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. She says that her life has improved since she joined the program, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming season, Selly plans to send her children to school.

Between the 5 farmers in Selly's Group, a total of 3.75 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 2 solar lights.
