Agnes's Group's story

Agnes is 42 years old and has nine children. She has been a farmer for 20 years and is always said to be a very friendly person. Even though Agnes is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Agnes started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2011, and decided to do so because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

Agnes’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 6.5 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan the group will also receive a total of eight solar lights.

In this group: Agnes, Fanuel J, Joseph N, Mercy, Fadhili, Margaret, Dinah, Janerose N, Josiah, Eshitemi N, Tabitha, Justmore
