Ann's Group's story

Ann, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by 7 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is 30 years old and a married mother of 2 children, often described as a very hardworking individual.

Although Ann has been a farmer for 5 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Even though she is new to the program, Ann wanted to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Ann hopes to be able to repair her home.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4.5 acres of land.

In this group: Ann, Brian, Charity, Mary, Nashon, Nelly, Mary
