Emmy's Group's story

Emmy is the group leader who appears in the photo. Her group consists of 11 farmers from Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother of five children and known in her community as a very reliable person.

Emmy joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to have access to quality training and learn new farming methods. 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 upcoming harvest season, Emmy plans to send her children to school.

Among the 11 farmers in Emmy's group, a total of 14.25 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 the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
