Beneteta's Group's story

Pictured above is Beneteta, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 53 years old and has seven children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of six farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Beneteta is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Beneteta says that she is happy to have made that decision because since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Beneteta will use the profits from this season to invest in a business.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of five acres. 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 three solar lights.
