Millicent's Group's story

Pictured above is Millicent, often described as an extremely resourceful person. She is 40 years old and has six children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Millicent is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Millicent says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2017, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Millicent will use the profits from this season to save more money for the future.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of four acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
