Habel's Group's story

Habel's Group is formed by 12 farmers in Kakamega North District and is being represented by Habel, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 29 years old, is married, and has 3 children. Habel has been a farmer for ten years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Habel isn’t new to One Acre Fund. He actually joined the program in 2013 and has since noticed his life has changed; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year, Habel will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase two solar lights. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Habel's Group will purchase a total of 9 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 6.5 acres.

In this group: Habel, Catherine, Mary, Mathew, Alice, Salome, Faith, Joel, Davidson, Nelson, Phelistas, Remigiuns
