Elizabeth's Group's story

Elizabeth is 39 years old and has 10 children. She has been a farmer for 18 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Elizabeth is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Elizabeth started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2010, and decided to do so because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has had more profits from each harvest ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

Elizabeth’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 5.75 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 seven solar lights.
