Janet's Group's story

Pictured above is Janet, often described as an extremely trustworthy person. She is 43 years old and has six children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of eight farmers in the Chwele District, Kenya.

Janet is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that she is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Janet says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Janet 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 3.75 acres. Some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan. The group will purchase a total of six solar lights.

In this group: Janet, Agnes, Bernard, Jotham, Eunice, Winpeck, Praxides, Jane

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
