Jane's Group's story

Pictured above is Jane, who, as a group leader, is representing her group, formed by 10 farmers, in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children and is known by her community to be a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Jane joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to save more money. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Jane plans to send her children to school.

Between the 10 farmers in Jane's Group, a total of 7.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, the group will also receive 1 solar light.

In this group: Jane, Alice , Doricas, Elizabeth, Livingstone, Winnie, Judith, Rose, Nashon, Jane
