A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Phanice's Group's story

Phanice's Group is formed by 15 farmers in Mumias District and is being represented by Phanice, who is the group leader pictured above.

She is 56 years old and has seven children. Phanice has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Phanice 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 had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since.

This year, Phanice 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, Phanice's Group will purchase a total of 11 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.25 acres.
