Vitalis' Group's story

Pictured above is Vitalis, often described as an extremely reliable person. He is 43 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 9 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Vitalis is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again to be able to earn enough to feed his family, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Vitalis says that he is happy to have made that decision. Since he first joined in 2017, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Vitalis will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5 acres.
