Basil's Group's story

Basil is often described as an extremely reliable person. He is 64 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 13 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Basil is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Basil says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2015, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Basil will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

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