Violet's Group's story

Pictured above is Violet, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 48 years old and has seven children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 14 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Violet 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. Violet says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2017, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Violet 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 9.5 acres.

In this group: Violet, Alfred, Fridah, Alice, John, Rose, Florence, Prisca, Joel, Elicah, Peninah, Josphine, Elisha, Corrie

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
