Conceptha's Group's story

Pictured above is Conceptha, who is often described as an extremely friendly person. She is 48 years old and has 5 children. As a group leader, she is representing 14 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Conceptha is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund because this means that she is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Conceptha says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Conceptha 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 10.25 acres. The group will also receive 1 solar light.

In this group: Conceptha, Joseph, Judith , Fanice , Esther, Lydia, Judith, Rukia, Carolyne, Rose, Videlis , Violet , Maurine, Mark
