Florence's Group's story

Pictured above is Florence, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 52 years old and has five children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 12 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Florence is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund as this means that she is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Florence says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Florence will use the profits from this season to invest in a business.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 14 acres.
