Tomas' Group's story

Tomas is 46 years old and has 6 children. He has been a farmer for 19 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Tomas is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 7 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Tomas started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013, and decided to do so because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, he has seen his life improve, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family. This year, he decided to represent his group because he was just nominated by his team.

Tomas’s group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 5 acres of land.
