Nifreda's Group's story

Nifreda, who appears in the photo, is often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 57 years old and has nine children. As a group leader, she is representing seven farmers from Lugari District, Kenya.

Nifreda 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. She says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Nifreda will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

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