Beatrice's Group's story

Pictured above is Beatrice, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to five children and is known by her community as a very resourceful person.

Initially, Beatrice joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Beatrice plans to send her children to school.

Among the 10 farmers in Beatrice's Group, a total of 6.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
