Evelyne's Group's story

Pictured above is Evelyne, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Evelyne joined One Acre Fund in 2013 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, Evelyne plans to send her children to school.

Between the 10 farmers in Evelyne's Group, a total of 8 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
