Charles' Group's story

Charles, featured in the above picture, is representing his farming group formed by 16 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. He is 73 years old and a married father of four children, often described as a very friendly person.

Although Charles has been a farmer for more than 20 years, he is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because he really wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Even though he is new to the program, Charles wanted to represent his group because he was just proposed by team. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Charles hopes to be able to buy more land to cultivate in.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 6 acres of land.
