Magret's Group's story
Magret is a 36-year-old proud mother of 4 children and is often described as very hardworking. As the group leader, she is representing her group of 12 farmers from Kakamega South District, Kenya for a loan to buy maize seeds, fertilizer, and solar lights. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2013, Magret has noticed that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. Magret described her harvest as excellent last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have an overall improved quality of life. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school. With this loan, Magret’s Group will be able to plant a total of 7 acres of land and purchase a total of 5 solar lights.
