Phylice's Group's story

Phylice's Group is formed by 12 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Phylice, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 43 years old, is married and has 2 children. Phylice has been a farmer for 6 years and is often referred to as a very friendly person.

Phylice isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has learnt a lot from farming trainings ever since. This year, Phylice will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Phylice's group will purchase a total of 3 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 6.25 acres.
