Lilian's Group's story

Pictured above is Lilian , who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to five children and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Lilian joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Lilian plans to save more money for the future.

Between the 12 farmers in Lilian's Group, a total of 7.75 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 a total of six solar lights.
