Fileria's Group's story

Pictured above is Fileria, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 52 years old and has 5 children. As group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Fileria is returning to work with One Acre Fund again this season because this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Fileria says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2017, she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Fileria will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4.5 acres. Since one member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
