Lilian's Group's story

Lilian, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by eight farmers in Alego District, Kenya. She is 35 years old and a married mother of four children, and is often described as a very resourceful person.

Although Lilian has been a farmer for 15 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Even though she is new to the program, Lilian wanted to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Lilian hopes to be able to send her children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 1.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of four solar lights, as, even though Lilian decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
