Wilder's Group's story

Wilder's Group is formed by 10 farmers in Kenya's Alego District and is represented by Wilder, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 50 years old and has eight children. Wilder has been a farmer for 19 years and is often referred to as a very friendly person.

Wilder isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family. This year, Wilder will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but she will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have an overall improved quality of life.

Using this loan, Wilder's Group will purchase a total of 3 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 6.5 acres.
