Mwaro's Group's story

Mwaro has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 20 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Mwaro is often described by her community as a very hardworking individual. She decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. Like many of her fellow farmers, Mwaro decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community to have access to quality training and to acquire new farming methods. She hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to invest in a business.

This loan will not only help Mwaro but the whole group, who will receive maize seed and fertilizer to plant a total of 4.375 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 three solar lights.
