Protus' Group's story

Pictured above is Protus, who is often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 53 years old and has 9 children. As a group leader, he is representing 17 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Protus is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund because this means that he will have access to the best seed prices, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Protus says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he joined in 2016, he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Protus will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant 11 acres. The group will also receive 3 solar lights.
