Willy's Group's story
This season is not the first one that Willy is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2017 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 19 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. Willy is often described by her community as a very friendly person and decided to be the one to represent her group because she was just proposed by team. Like many of her fellow farmers, Willy decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to invest in a business. This loan will not only help Willy but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 10.5 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 6 solar lights.
