Catherine's Group's story

Catherine, featured in the picture above, is representing her farming group formed by 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is 43 years old and a married mother of 7 children, often described as a very reliable person.

Although Catherine has been a farmer for 20 years, she is new to One Acre Fund. She decided to join this year because she wants to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Even though she is new to the program, Catherine asked to represent her group because she wants to help more farmers. Catherine hopes to be able to send her children to school with the profits earned from this season's harvest.

With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 6.25 acres of land. They will also receive 4 solar lights, as some of the group's farmers will purchase solar lights with their loan portions.
