Patrick's Group's story

Patrick is 64 years old and has four children. He has been a farmer for 16 years and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Patrick is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 10 farmers in Teso district, Kenya.

He started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago and decided to do so because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since then, Patrick has seen his life improve; he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community.

Patrick’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4.75 acres of land. Additionally, two of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light.
