Mildah's Group's story

Mildah is 62 years old and has three children. She has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very trustworthy person. Even though she is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

She started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013, and decided to do so because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community.

Mildah’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 10.25 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of four solar lights.

In this group: Mildah , Gladys, Janerose, Paul, Rose, Iseren , Bonace, Roselyne, William , Robert, Ididi


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
