Teso, Busia County, Kenya / Agriculture

Phidalis' 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 for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Phidalis' Group's story

Phidalis, pictured above, has 8 children. He is representing his group of 13 farmers in the Teso District of Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2011, and decided to represent his group in order to gain leadership skills.

With a portion of this loan, Phidalis will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvest season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of his loan means that he will now be able to have light for his children to study by during dark hours. Phidalis plans to use the profits he gains this year to send his children to school.

Phidalis’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 10.25 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
