Eldah's Group's story

Pictured above is Eldah, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 52 years old and has seven children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 12 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Eldah is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Eldah says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Eldah will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of six acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of five solar lights.
