Ruth's Group's story

Ruth, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by four farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is 42 years old and a married mother of three children. She is often described as a very hardworking individual.

Although Ruth has been a farmer for 10 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Even though she is new to the program, Ruth wanted to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Ruth hopes to be able to buy chicken.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 0.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of three solar lights.
