Martha's Group's story

Martha is 35 years old and has one child. She has been a farmer for 16 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Martha is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Martha started working with One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013. She decided to do so because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Martha decided to represent her group because she was proposed by the team.

Martha’s group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 11.25 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light. With this loan, the group will also receive a total of 2 solar lights.
