Dennis' Group's story

Dennis, featured in the above picture, is representing his farming group formed by 5 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He is 28 years old and a married father of 2 children, often described as a very friendly person.

Although Dennis has been a farmer for 16 years, he is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because he really wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Even though he is new to the program, Dennis wanted to represent his group because he was proposed by his team. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Dennis hopes to be able to invest in a business.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 2.25 acres of land. They will also receive 1 solar light, as, even though Dennis decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
