Alice's Group's story

Pictured above is Alice, who is often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 54 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, she is representing 19 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Alice is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund because this means that she is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Alice says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2017, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Alice 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 17.25 acres. The group will also receive 2 solar lights.
