Christine's Group's story

Pictured above is Christine, often described as an extremely-friendly person. She is 56 years old and has seven children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of eight farmers in Mumias district, Kenya.

Christine is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Christine says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2017, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly.

She will use the profits from this season to send her children to school. The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.25 acres.
