A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Truphosa's Group's story

Pictured above is Truphosa, often described as an extremely friendly person. She is 52 years old and has seven children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of five farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Truphosa is again returning this season to work with One Acre Fund as this means that she is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Truphosa says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly.

Truphosa 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 a total of 4.5 acres.
