Victor's Group's story

Pictured above is Victor, often described as an extremely trustworthy person. He is 65 years old and has 10 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 13 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Victor is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to get the best-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Victor says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2015, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Victor will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6 acres.
