Patricia's Group's story

Pictured above is Patricia, who as a group leader is representing her group formed by 9 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. She is a mother to 7 children and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Patricia 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 been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Patricia plans to send her children to school.

Between the 9 farmers in Patricia's Group, a total of 6 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
