Jamin's Group's story
Jamin, featured in the above picture, is representing his group formed by 11 farmers in Kakamega North District, Kenya. He is 74 years old and a married father of nine children, often described as a very experienced farmer. Although Jamin has been a farmer for more than 50 years, he is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because he really wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Even though he is new to the program, Jamin wanted to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Jamin hopes to be able to send his children to school. With this loan, the group will receive nine solar lights among them and farming inputs to plant a total of 5.75 acres of land.
