Philister's Group's story

Philister is 52 years old and has four children. A farmer for more than 20 years, she is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Philister is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Philister started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2014, and decided to do so because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Consequently, she has seen her life improve, in that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

Philister’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 11.5 acres of land. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
