Felix's Group's story
Felix's Group is formed by 13 farmers in Mumias District and is being represented by Felix, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 38 years old and has 7 children. Felix has been a farmer for 15 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual. Felix isn’t new to One Acre Fund, he actually joined the program in 2017 and has since noticed his life has changed; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year, Felix will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have light during the night in order to feel safer. Using this loan, Felix's Group will purchase a total of 8 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 7 acres.
