Wasike's Group's story

Wasike has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 and, although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of seven farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Wasike is often described by his community as a very hardworking individual. He decided to represent his group because he wanted to help spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. Like many of his fellow farmers, Wasike decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community to earn enough to send his children to school. He and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

This loan will not only help Wasike but the whole group, who will receive maize seed and fertilizer to plant a total of 5 acres of land.
