Moses' Group's story

This season is not the first one that Moses is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2018. Although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 11 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Moses is often described by his community as a very experienced farmer, and decided to be the one to represent his group because he wanted to gain leadership skills. Like many of his fellow farmers, Moses decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to earn enough to send his children to school. He hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to buy more land to cultivate.

This loan will not only help Moses but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 11 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan the group will also receive one solar light.
