Jenita's Group's story

Pictured above is Jenita, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by nine farmers in Lugari district, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known to her community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Jenita joined One Acre Fund in 2014 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 save more money. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Jenita plans to send her children to school.

Between the nine farmers in Jenita's Group, a total of 7.25 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 that with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
