Phoebe's Group's story

Phoebe is 71 years old and has 4 children. She has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Phoebe is the only one featured in the above picture she is actually representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Phoebe started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013, and decided to do so because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since then, she has seen her life improve; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader.

Phoebe ’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 16 acres of land.
