Janet's Group's story

Janet is 67 years old and has six children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Janet has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2012. This decision was largely as a result of her desire to earn enough to feed her family and, although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Janet also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Janet's group will be able to receive a total of 4 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 6.5 acres.

In this group: Janet, Adelide, Hellen, Ann, Jotham, Francis, Daniel, Joseph, Francis, Esther

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
