Everlyne's Group's story

Everlyne is 36 years old and has 7 children. She has been a farmer for 19 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Everlyne is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Bungoma District, Kenya. Everlyne started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, she has seen her life improve; especially in the sense that she has had more profits from each harvest ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. Everlyne’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4.25 acres of land. 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 7 solar lights."
