Faith's Group's story
Pictured above is Faith, who, as a group leader, is representing her group, formed by 11 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is married and is a mother to four children, known by her community as a very hardworking individual. Initially, Faith joined One Acre Fund in 2011 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has learnt a lot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Faith plans to save more money for the future. Among the 11 farmers in Faith's Group, a total of six acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. 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 nine solar lights.
