Wilimina's Group's story

Wilimina is 54 years old and has 4 children. She has been a farmer for 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Wilimina is the only one featured in the above picture she is actually representing her group formed by 9 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Wilimina started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods.

Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has a large farm group support ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

Wilimina’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 8.5 acres of land.
