Elizabeth's Group's story

Pictured above is Elizabeth, who (as Group Leader) is representing her group formed by 6 farmers in the Webuye District of Kenya.

Elizabeth is a mother to 8 children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Elizabeth joined One Acre Fund in 2009 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizers and hybrid seeds.

Since she joined the program, Elizabeth says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Elizabeth plans to send her children to school.

Among the 6 farmers in Elizabeth's Group, a total of 2.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.

Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 2 solar lights.
