Samuel's Group's story

Samuel is 48 years old and has 3 children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Samuel is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 5 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Samuel started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, he has seen his life improve, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he was just proposed by a team.

Samuel’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 2.75 acres of land.
