Philice's Group's story

Pictured above is Philice, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Philice joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Philice plans to send her children to school.

Between the 12 farmers in Philice's Group, a total of 10 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 2 solar lights.
