Lilian's Group's story

Lilian is 53 years old and has 4 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Lilian has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2012. This decision was largely a result of her desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and, although she described her last harvest as poor due to bad weather conditions, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund.

Lilian also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Lilian's Group will be able to receive a total of 6 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 10.75 acres.
