Phanice's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Phanice's Group's story

Pictured above is Phanice, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 9 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to 10 children and is known by her community as a very resourceful person.

Initially, Phanice joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Phanice plans to send her children to school.

Between the 9 farmers in Phanice's Group, a total of 6 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
