Jenipher's Group's story

Pictured above is Jenipher, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 35 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Jenipher is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Jenipher 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. Jenipher will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase a total of 3 solar lights as well as seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4.75 acres.

In this group: Jenipher, Albert, Everline, Mary, Wilfrida, Patrick, Henry, Jane, Frederick, Risper

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
