Florence's Group's story

Pictured above is Florence, who, as a group leader, is representing her group of seven farmers in Mumias district, Kenya. Between these farmers in Florence's Group, a total of three acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.

She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very reliable person. Initially, Florence joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. 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, Florence plans to send her children to school.
