Phoebe'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.

Phoebe's Group's story

Pictured above is Phoebe, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 71 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 12 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Phoebe is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Phoebe says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2013, she has learnt a lot from farming training, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Phoebe will use the profits from this season to invest in a business.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 10.25 acres.
