Akilus' Group's story

Akilus has five children and is known by his community as a very experienced farmer. He is a group leader representing his group of nine farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Akilus joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since he joined the program, his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Akilus plans to send his children to school.

Among the nine farmers in Akilus's Group, a total of five acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
