Kilea's Group's story

Kilea is group leader, representing 15 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He's a father to six children and is known by his community as a very friendly person.

Initially, Kilea joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. He says since he joined the program his life has improved, especially in that he's able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Kilea plans to buy chicken.

Between the 15 farmers in Kilea's Group, a total of 15 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, one of the farmers will be purchasing a solar light.
