A loan of $400 helps a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.


Irine's Group's story

Pictured above is Irine, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 42 years old and has five children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of seven farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Irine is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that she is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods which is why she decided to join in the first place. Irine says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2019, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Irine will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.25 acres.

In this group: Irine, Lydia, Moses, Edward, Kevin, Fridah, Matifari
