Everlyne's Group's story
Everlyne is 37 years old and is often described as a very hardworking individual. She has 4 children and is married. As a group leader, Everlyne is representing her group of 6 farmers in Kakamega North District in Kenya, and is very excited to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year. The decision to join One Acre Fund was largely a result of Everlyne's desire to earn enough to feed her family. Apart from receiving farming inputs, she is also purchasing a solar light as part of her loan, which is very exciting to her as she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. With the profits that she gains from this year’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school. Everlyne and her group will receive a total of 5 solar lights as well as input loans of maize and fertilizer to plant a total of 2.75 acres.
