Beatrice's Group's story

Beatrice's Group is formed by 10 farmers in Chwele District and is being represented by Beatrice, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 50 years old and has 10 children. Beatrice has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Beatrice isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2014 and has since noticed her life has changed - especially in the sense that she has had more profits from each harvest ever since. This year, Beatrice will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during dark hours, allowing her children to study.

Using this loan, Beatrice's Group will purchase a total of six solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.25 acres.
