Rebecca's Group's story

In the photo is Rebecca, who, as a group leader, is representing a group formed by nine farmers from Teso district, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Rebecca joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Rebecca plans to buy a cow.

Among the nine farmers in Rebecca's Group, a total of 7.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
