Beatrice's Group's story

Pictured above is Beatrice, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by six farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to nine children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Beatrice joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Beatrice plans to repair her home.

Among the six farmers in Beatrice's Group, a total of 4.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. 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 three solar lights.
