Priscillah's Group's story

Pictured above is Priscillah, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 58 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 8 farmers in the Lugari District of Kenya.

Priscillah is returning this season to work again with One Acre Fund so that she can have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. This is why she decided to join in the first place, and Priscillah says that she is happy to have made that decision. Since she first joined in 2015, she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Priscillah will use the profits from this season to buy more land to cultivate.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 7.25 acres.
