Catherine's Group's story

Catherine is 46 years old and has three children. She has been a farmer for 15 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Catherine is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Catherine started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and 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.

Catherine’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 23.25 acres of land.
