Beatrice's Group's story

Pictured above is Beatrice, often described as an extremely trustworthy person. She is 51 years old and has 8 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 12 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Beatrice is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Beatrice says that she is happy to have made that decision because since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Beatrice will use the profits from this season to invest in a business.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 7 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, the group will also receive a total of 6 solar lights with this loan.
