Hanipher's Group's story

Pictured above is Hanipher, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya. She is a mother to eight children and is known by her community as a very friendly person.

Initially, Hanipher joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to earn enough to send her children to school. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Hanipher plans to send her children to school.

Among the 10 farmers in Hanipher's Group, a total of 6.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
