Lilian's Group's story

Lilian is 32 years old and has six children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Kakamega North District, Kenya.

Lilian has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2011. This decision was largely a result of her desire to earn enough to feed her family and, although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund.

Lilian also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Lilian's Group will be able to receive a total of seven solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 7.75 acres.

In this group: Lilian, Eliud, Timothy, Cecilia, Emmy, Mary, Ignatius, Florence, Isaac, Peter, Josephine, Aggrey, Hellen Chuma, Mtondo
