Catherine's Group's story

Catherine is a 50-year-old proud mother of four children. She is a group leader, often described as a very resourceful person, and is representing her group of 13 farmers in Webuye District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, she has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

She described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge her phone.

With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Catherine’s Group will be able to plant a total of 8.75 acres of land and purchase a total of two solar lights.
