Petronila's Group's story

Petronila is 52 years old and has 4 children. She has been a farmer for 20 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Petronila is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Petronila started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago in 2012. She decided to do so because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader.

Petronila’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 10.25 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing solar lights, so with this loan the group will also receive a total of 4 solar lights.
