Cordillah's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Cordillah is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years, having joined the program in 2016. Although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 11 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Cordillah is often described by her community as a very hardworking individual and decided to be the one to represent her group because she wants to gain leadership skills. Like many of her fellow farmers, Cordillah decided that she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to earn enough to feed her family and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to save more money for the future.

This loan will not only help Cordillah but her whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.5 acres of land. 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 6 solar lights.
