Naum's Group's story

Naum, featured in the above photo, is representing her farming group formed by seven farmers in the Lugari District, Kenya. Aged 40 and a married mother of three children, Naum is often described as a very friendly person.

Although Naum has been a farmer for more than 20 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year as she really wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Even though she is new to the program, Naum wanted to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Naum hopes to be able to send her children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 7.75 acres of land. They will also receive one solar light.
