Dina's Group's story

Pictured above is Dina, who is often described as an extremely friendly person. She is 69 years old and has 8 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Dina is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund as this means that she is able to earn enough to send her children to school, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Dina 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. Dina will use the profits from this season to save more money for the future.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.75 acres.
