Saifa's Group's story

Saifa is 47 years old and has 2 children. She has been a farmer for 7 years and is always said to be a very resourceful person. Even though Saifa is the only one featured in the above picture she is actually representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Saifa started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2014, and decided to do so because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since then, she has seen her life improve; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills.

Saifa’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 3.25 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: Saifa, Mourine, Ali , Asha, Edith, James, Raphael, Edward, Roseline, Fabian


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
