Beatrice's Group's story

Beatrice's Group is formed by nine farmers in Lugari District and is being represented by Beatrice, who is the group leader pictured above.

She is 73 years old and has 10 children. Beatrice has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very resourceful person.

Beatrice isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2016 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

This year, Beatrice will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition, since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Beatrice's Group will purchase a total of 2 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 7.25 acres.
