Celestine's Group's story

Celestine is 35 years old and has 3 children. She has been a farmer for 10 years and is always said to be a very friendly person. Even though Celestine is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 6 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Celestine started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago in 2013, and decided to do so because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has learned a lot from farming training ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

Celestine’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 3.25 acres of land. None of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light.

In this group: Celestine, Getray, Everline, Gedrick, Lilian , Francis


This loan is special because:
