Patrick's Group's story

Patrick is 44 years old and has 4 children. He has been a farmer for 18 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Patrick is the only one featured in the above picture, he is representing his group formed by 7 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Patrick started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do this, because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, he has seen his life improve, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group, because he wanted to help more farmers.

Patrick’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4.25 acres of land. Additionally, one farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
