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

A loan helped purchase a solar light and gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Phanice's Group's story

Phanice is 31 years old and has five children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Phanice has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2010. This decision was largely as a result of her desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, and, although she described her last harvest as poor due to bad weather conditions, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Phanice also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Phanice's group will be able to receive a total of seven solar lights, as well as farming inputs, to plant a total of 11.25 acres.
