Peter's Group's story

Pictured above is Peter, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 12 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. He is a father to 5 children and is known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Peter joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because he wanted to get the best-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. 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, Peter plans to send his children to school.

The 12 farmers in Peter's Group will plant 14 acres of land using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. The group will also receive 1 solar light.
