Collins' Group's story

This season is not the first one that Collins is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2019. Although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 12 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Collins is often described by his community as a very hardworking individual and decided to be the one to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. Like many of his fellow farmers, Collins decided to be a part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to the best seed prices and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

This loan will not only help Collins but also the whole group, which will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 9.75 acres of land. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
