Patrick's Group's story

Pictured above is Patrick, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 69 years old and has nine children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 12 farmers from Teso District, Kenya.

Patrick is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means he is able to earn enough to feed his family, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Patrick says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2015, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Patrick will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 7.75 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of five solar lights.
