A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer.

Florence's Group's story

Pictured above is Florence, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 6 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Florence joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. 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, Florence plans to send her children to school.

Between the 6 farmers in Florence's Group, a total of 3.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
