Webuye, Bungoma, Kenya / Agriculture

Milicent's Group's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to purchase a solar light and gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Milicent's Group's story

Milicent is a 32-year-old proud mother of five children. She is a group leader, often described as a very trustworthy person, and is representing her group of 12 farmers in Webuye District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, Milicent has noticed that she has learnt a lot from farming training sessions. Milicent described her harvest as excellent last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to reduce her consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to buy a cow. With this loan, Milicent’s Group will be able to plant a total of 7.25 acres of land and purchase a total of 11 solar lights.
