Joan's Group's story

This season is not the first one in which Joan is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2016 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 13 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Joan is often described by her community as a very experienced farmer, and decided to be the one to represent her group because it was proposed by the team. Like many of her fellow farmers, Joan decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

This loan will not only help Joan, but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of nine acres of land.

In this group: Joan, Wilbroda A, Everlyne C, Dorcas, Vinscent, Micheal, Tom K, Opala, Ezekiel, Chrispinus, Leonard, Maximilla, Winny
