Everline's Group's story

Pictured above is Everline, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 43 years old and has five children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 17 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Everline 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. Everline says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Everline 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 15.75 acres.

In this group: Everline, Sarah, Benjamin, Geoffrey, Mary, Ben, Josephat, Lucy, Zadock, Rabecca, Linet, Jane, Margaret, Catherine, Peter, Rose, Tophister
