Petina's Group's story

Petina is 41 years old and has 4 children. She has been a farmer for 20 years and is always said to be a very reliable person. Even though Petina is the only one featured in the above picture she is actually representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya.

Petina started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, she has seen her life improve; especially in the sense that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

Petina’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 8.75 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.

In this group: Petina, Edward, Martha, Sirengo, Peter, Joice, Everline, Metrine, Mercy, Ruth

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
