Beatrice's Group's story

Beatrice, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of nine farmers in Kimilili District. She is 65 years old and a single mother of four.

Beatrice likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2016 and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. Beatrice plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a cow.

In total, Beatrice’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4.5 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of six solar lights.
