Philip's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Philip's Group's story

Pictured above is Philip, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by nine farmers in Matete District, Kenya. He is a father to 12 children and is known by his community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Philip joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Philip plans to save more money for the future.

Among the nine farmers in Philip's Group, a total of 8 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
