Patrick's Group's story

Pictured above is Patrick, often described as an extremely reliable person. He is 60 years old and has 8 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 7 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Patrick is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Patrick says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2015, he has learnt a lot from farming trainings, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Patrick will use the profits from this season to save more money for the future.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4 acres.
