Anna's Group's story

Anna, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by 4 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is 34 years old and a married mother of 3 children, often described as a very friendly person.

Although Anna has been a farmer for 6 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Even though she is new to the program, Anna wanted to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Anna hopes to be able to send her children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 1.25 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 2 solar lights, as, even though Anna decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
