Beatrice's Group's story

Pictured above is Beatrice, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Beatrice joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has learnt a lot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Beatrice plans to buy more land to cultivate.

Among the 13 farmers in Beatrice's Group, a total of 9 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 five solar lights.
