Eclay's Group's story

Eclay, pictured above, has been a farmer for 7 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 7 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District. She is 38 years old, married and has 4 children.

Eclay likes to think of herself as a very experienced farmer. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2016 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Eclay plans to use the profits from this coming season to invest in a business.

In total, Eclay’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 3.75 acres of land.

In this group: Eclay, Beatrice, Mike, Esther, Margaret, Phanice, Alphoncina
