Phillis' Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve maize harvests.

Phillis' Group's story

Phillis, pictured above, has been a farmer for 18 years, and she is now proud to represent her group of 13 farmers in Webuye District. She is 33 years old, married, and has 5 children.

Phillis likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2015 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Phillis plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Phillis’ Group will receive inputs to cultivate 9.25 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 4 solar lights.
