Agripina's Group's story

Agripina is 50 years old and has four children. She has been a farmer for 20 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Agripina is the only one featured in the picture, she is actually representing her group of 11 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Agripina started working alongside One Acre Fund several years ago, in 2013. She decided to do so because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. 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 she decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

Agripina’s group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 8.25 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers will purchase a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive three solar lights.
