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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Philister's Group's story

Pictured above is Philister, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 42 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 9 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. She is married and has 3 children.

Philister is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Philister says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Philister 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 3 acres.
