Absolom's Group's story

Absolom is 58 years old and the proud father of 5 children. He is a group leader and is often described as a very hardworking individual. He is representing his group of 15 farmers in Kakamega South District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2013, Absolom has noticed that he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Absolom described his harvest last year as good, but he believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited also to be purchasing a solar light, as well as the fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to have light during the dark hours for his children to be able to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, Absolom’s Group will be able to plant a total of 9 acres of land and purchase a total of 7 solar lights.

In this group: Absolom, Abraham, Phanice, Beatrice, Janet, Hellen, Florence, Debula, Ester, Ebby, Nixon, Fanuel, Patricia, Samwuel, Reuben
