Beatrice's Group's story

Beatrice is 35 years old and has 4 children. She has been a farmer for 14 years and is always described as a very reliable person. Even though Beatrice is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 7 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Beatrice started working alongside One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to gain access to the highest-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. She decided to represent her group this year because she wanted to help more farmers.

Beatrice’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 5 acres of land. Additionally, one farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
