Amitah's Group's story

Amitah, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by 6 farmers from Mumias District, Kenya. She is 33 years old and a married mother of 4 children, often described as a very friendly person.

Although Amitah has been a farmer for one year, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Even though she is new to the program, Amitah wanted to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Amitah hopes to be able to send her children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 2 acres of land.
