Judith's Group's story

Pictured above is Judith, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 43 years old and has 7 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 12 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Judith is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund 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. Judith says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Judith 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 4.25 acres. Some members of the group will also purchase a solar light. With this loan, the group will receive a total of 5 solar lights.

In this group: Judith, Biliah, Bramwel, Roseline, Andrew, Janepher, Dinah, Esther, Eliud, Stephen, Josca, Violet

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
