Colletar's Group's story

Colletar is 45 years old and has four children. She has been a farmer for 20 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Colletar is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by nine farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Colletar 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 help more farmers.

Colletar’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4 acres of land. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.

In this group: Colletar, Delphine, Florence, Flora Nelima, Florence, Catherine, Moureen, Naomi, John


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
