Margret's Group's story

Pictured above is Margret, often described as an extremely friendly person. She is 58 years old and has six children. As a group leader, she is representing 10 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Margret is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund as this means she is able to make more farmer friends in her community, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Margret says she is happy to have made that decision because, since she joined in 2016, she has been able to save more money, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Margret will use the profits from this season to buy more land to cultivate.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.5 acres. With this loan, the group also will receive a total of five solar lights.
