Erneo's Group's story

Pictured above is Erneo, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 54 years old and has 9 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 11 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Erneo is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Erneo says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2018, he has learnt alot from farming trainings, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Erneo will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.75 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 2 solar lights.
