Pamela's Group's story

Pictured above is Pamela, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 52 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 9 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Pamela is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as 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. Pamela 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. Pamela will use the profits from this season to repair her home.

The group will use this loan to purchase a total of 4 solar lights, as well as seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4.75 acres.

In this group: Pamela, Carolyne, Esther, Biliah, Dorice, Janet, Susy, Reuben, Alice

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
