Jacub's Group's story

Pictured above is Jacub, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 10 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He is a father to five children and is known by his community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Jacub joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Jacub plans to buy chickens.

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