Gerishom's Group's story

Gerishom is 30 years old and is often referred to as a really friendly person. As a group leader, he is representing his group in Kakamega B (North) District, formed by 8 farmers, including himself.

Gerishom has been a farmer for 5 years, and has worked with One Acre Fund for a while now, having joined for the first time in 2018 because he wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Not only will he get maize seeds and fertilizer with his loan, but also a solar light in order to have light during the night in order to feel safer. He decided that he will use the profits he gains from this year’s harvest to rent more land to cultivate.

With this loan, Gerishom’s Group will receive a total of 6 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 5.25 acres.
