Beatrice's Group's story

Pictured above is Beatrice, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 8 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children and is known by her community as a very resourceful person.

Initially, Beatrice joined One Acre Fund in 2014 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 had a healthier life due to better nutrition. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Beatrice plans to buy more land to cultivate.

Between the 8 farmers in Beatrice's Group, a total of 5.75 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.
