Beatrice's Group's story

Beatrice, featured in the above picture, is representing her farming group formed by 5 farmers in Sirisia District, Kenya. She is 49 years old and a married mother of 8 children, often described as a very experienced farmer. Although Beatrice has been a farmer for more than 20 years, she is new to One Acre Fund and decided to join this year because she really wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Even though she is new to the program, Beatrice wanted to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With the profits earned from this season’s harvest, Beatrice hopes to be able to send her children to school. With this loan, the group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4.5 acres of land.
