Wilfred's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Wilfred is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2016 and, although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 18 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Wilfred is often described by his community as a very friendly person and decided to be the one to represent his group because he likes being a leader. Like many of his fellow farmers, Wilfred decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to the best seed prices and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

This loan will not only help Wilfred but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 11.5 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 4 solar lights.
