Paul's Group's story

Paul is 65 years old and has one child. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Paul is the only one featured in the above picture, he is representing his group of 11 farmers from Kenya's Alego District.

Paul started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2014. He decided to do so because he wanted to have access to quality training and learn new farming methods. Since then, Paul has seen his life improve, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family. This year, Paul decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

Paul’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 6.25 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing solar lights so, with this loan the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.

In this group: Paul, Dan, Caroline, Ruth , Ruth, Victor, Peter , Florence, Isack, Jackson, Helida

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
