Benard's Group's story

Benard is 33 years old and has 4 children. He has been a farmer for 16 years and is always said to be a very reliable person. Even though Benard is the only one featured in the above picture he is actually representing his group formed by 11 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. Benard started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2014, and decided to do so because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, he has seen his life improve; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. Benard’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 9.5 acres of land.
