Jane's Group's story

Jane, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by 12 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. She is 36 years old and a married mother of 3 children, often described as a very resourceful person.

Although Jane has been a farmer for 3 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and 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, Jane wanted to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Jane hopes to be able to send her children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 9 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 3 solar lights, as, even though Jane decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
