Fred's Group's story

Fred is 58 years old and, as the group leader of his group, he is representing 16 farmers in Kimilili District. He is looking forward to working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year, as this means he will earn enough to feed his family.

Fred has been a farmer for more than 30 years and is often described as a very hard-working individual. He decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. With the profits he earns from this coming season, Fred would like to send his children to school and increase the number of goats.

Between the 16 farmers in Fred’s Group, a total of 7 acres will be planted using the inputs from this loan.

In this group: Fred, Coleta, Wycliffe, Leonard, Cresmos, Floriano, David, Zainabu, Pascal, Violet, Janet, Maurice, Susan, Claire, Michael, Phylis


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
