Benson's Group's story

Pictured above is Benson, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 55 years old and has nine children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of eight farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Benson is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Benson says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2019, he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Benson will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.25 acres.
