A loan helped a member to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvest season.


Phillip's Group's story

Pictured above is Phillip, who, as a group leader, is representing nine farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. He is a father to eight children and is known in his community as a very hardworking individual.

Phillip joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Phillip plans to send his children to school.

Among the nine farmers in Phillip's Group, a total of 8.75 acres will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.

In this group: Phillip, Kennedy, Patrick, Kennedy, Jane, Roselyne, Adelyde, Martha, Silivia
