Alice's Group's story

Pictured above is Alice, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 40 years old and has six children. As a group leader, she represents seven farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Alice is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund as this means she is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Alice says she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2019, 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 a total of 5.75 acres, and also will receive one solar light.
