Peter's Group's story
Peter, featured in the above picture, is representing his farming group formed by 13 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. Peter is 47 years old and a married father of six children. He is often described as a very reliable person. Although Peter has been a farmer for more than 20 years, he is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because he really wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Even though he is new to the program, Peter wanted to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, he hopes to be able to send his children to school. With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 6.25 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 8 solar lights because, even though Peter decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
