Elicah's Group's story

Elicah, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by 7 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is 43 years old and a married mother of 3 children, often described as a very hardworking individual.

Although Elicah has been a farmer for 11 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Even though she is new to the program, Elicah wanted to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Elicah hopes to be able to send her children to school.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 5.75 acres of land.
