Bridgid's Group's story

This is Bridgid, who is the leader of her group formed by 14 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She has six children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Bridgid joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. 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 harvest season, Bridgid plans to send her children to school.

Between the 14 farmers in Bridgid 's Group, a total of 7.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers will be buying a solar light, with the group to receive a total of eight solar lights.
