Benard's Group's story

Benard, pictured above, has been a farmer for 15 years and is now proud to represent his group of six farmers in Kenya's Teso District. Benard is 54 years old, married, and has four children.

Benard likes to think of himself as a very reliable person. He has been working with One Acre Fund since 2017, and he decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader. Benard says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has gained a lot of respect in his community. Benard plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, Benard’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 2.25 acres of land.
