Peter's Group's story

Pictured above is Peter, often described as an extremely reliable person. He is 29 years old and, as a group leader, he is representing his group of six farmers in Kakamega South District, Kenya. He is married and has two children.

Peter is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to earn enough to send his children to school, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Peter says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2013, he has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly.

Peter will use the profits from this season to save more money for the future.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of six acres.

In this group: Peter, Eunice, Rosalia, Immaculate, Patrick, Fridah
