Leunita's Group's story

Pictured above is Leunita, who as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 8 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother of 6 children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Leunita joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has learnt a lot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, she plans to send her children to school.

Among the 8 farmers in Leunita's Group, a total of 5.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.

In this group: Leunita, Sarah, Dorcas, Caroline, Ernest, Everline, Lawrence, Simon

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
