Juliana's Group's story

Pictured above is Juliana, who as a group leader is representing her group formed by four farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to nine children and is known by her community as a very resourceful person.

Initially, Juliana joined One Acre Fund in 2012 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, Juliana plans to send her children to school.

Between the four farmers in Juliana 's Group, a total of 5.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
