Patrick's Group's story

Patrick is 52 years old and has 2 children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very resourceful person. Even though Patrick is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 16 farmers, in Teso District, Kenya.

Patrick 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 learnt a lot from farming trainings ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to gain leadership skills.

Patrick’s Group will receive farming inputs to plan total of 13.25 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 2 solar lights.
