Margaret's Group's story

Pictured above is Margaret who as a group leader is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is a mother of five children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Margaret joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has gained a lot of respect in her community. With the profits from the upcoming harvest season, Margaret plans to send her children to school.

Between the 11 farmers in Margaret 's Group, a total of eight acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
