Bernard's Group's story

Pictured above is Bernard, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 57 years old and has 10 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Bernard is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Bernard says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2015, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Bernard will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 8.75 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
