Magaret's Group's story
This season is not the first one that Magaret is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2017 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 11 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. Magaret is often described by her community as a very experienced farmer and decided to be the one to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. Like many of her fellow farmers, Magaret decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send her children to school. This loan will not only help Magaret but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.75 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 2 solar lights.
