William's Group's story

Pictured above is William, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 9 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He is a father to 6 children and is known by his community as a very reliable person.

Initially, William joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, William plans to invest in a business.

Between the 9 farmers in William's Group, a total of 5.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
