Elizabeth's Group's story

Pictured above is Elizabeth, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 16 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She is married and is a mother to 4 children, known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Elizabeth joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Elizabeth plans to send her children to school.

Between the 16 farmers in Elizabeth's Group, a total of 10 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. 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 9 solar lights.
