Benard's Group's story

Benard has been a farmer for 20 years and is now proud to represent his group of 13 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. He is 32 years old, married and has three children.

Benard likes to think of himself as a very friendly person. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2016 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has realized more profits from each harvest. Benard plans to use the profits from this coming season to repair his home.

In total, Benard’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate six acres of land. One member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light.
