Everline's Group's story

Everline, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by nine farmers in Alego District, Kenya. She is 30 years old and a married mother of two children, often described as a very resourceful person.

Although Everline has been a farmer for 15 years, she is new to One Acre Fund. She decided to join this year because she really wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Even though she is new to the program, Everline wanted to represent her group because she was just proposed by the team. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, she hopes to be able to invest in a business.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 2.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 3 solar lights. Even though Everline decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
