Violet's Group's story
Violet, pictured above, has five children and is always described as a very hardworking individual, which is why she was selected to become the leader of her group. Violet is representing her group of eight farmers in Kakamega South District, and is happy to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year. Violet has been a farmer for 20 years, and in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, she decided to join the One Acre Fund program this season. Her loan will not only include farming inputs, but also two solar lights, which she is very happy to be getting as that means she will now have an overall improved quality of life. With the profits from this coming season, Violet is planning to buy a goat. Violet’s Group will plant a total of 3.75 acres, and between them they will receive a total of five solar lights.
