Alice's Group's story
Pictured above is Alice, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She is a mother to 6 children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer. Initially, Alice joined One Acre Fund in 2009 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has learnt a lot from farming training. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Alice plans to buy a cow. Between the 10 farmers in Alice's Group, a total of 6.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 6 solar lights.
