Consilata's Group's story

Pictured above is Consilata, often described as an extremely resourceful person. She is 49 years old and has seven children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 11 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Consilata is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Consilata says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has been able to feed her family consistently, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Consilata will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.75 acres.
