Mildred's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Mildred, shown above, has been working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2017. Although she is the only person featured in the above photo, she is actually representing her group of 7 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Mildred is often described by her community as a very friendly person, She decided to be the one to represent her group because she likes being a leader. Like many of her fellow farmers, Mildred decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. She hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to invest in a business.

This loan will not only help Mildred, but also the whole group. They will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.25 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a total of 1 solar light.
