David's Group's story

Pictured above is David, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 35 years old and has five children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 12 farmers from Kenya's Alego District.

This season, David is once again working with One Acre Fund as this means that he can get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place. David says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2015, he has been able to consistently feed his family. This has improved his day-to-day life significantly. David will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 8.25 acres. Some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan, the group will also receive a total of six solar lights.
