Caro's Group's story

Pictured above is Caro, often described as an extremely trustworthy person. She is 29 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 14 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She is married and has two children.

Caro is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Caro says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2014, she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Caro will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 11.25 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of seven solar lights.

In this group: Caro, Alfred, Edith, Gilbert, Dina, Manuel, Rosemary, Betty, Catherine, Annet, Tamara, Elizabeth, Salome, Teresa


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
