Fanice's Group's story

Pictured above is Fanice, who is often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 60 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 7 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Fanice is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund as this means that she is able to have access to quality training and to acquire new farming methods, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Fanice says that she is happy to have made that decision, because, since she first joined in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Fanice will use the profits from this season to repair her home.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 2 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 5 solar lights.
