Stephen's Group's story
Stephen is 42 years old and has six children. He is a group leader and is representing his group formed by 10 farmers in Kakamega North District, Kenya. Stephen has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2010. This decision was largely a result of his desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Although he described his last harvest as good, he believes he could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Stephen also decided to purchase a solar light as part of his loan, which he is very excited about, as it will allow him to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Obtaining this loan means that Stephen's Group will be able to receive a total of seven solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 7.25 acres.
