Getrude's Group's story

Pictured above is Getrude, often described as an extremely reliable person. She is 32 years old and has five children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of nine farmers in Teso district, Kenya.

Getrude is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to get the best-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Getrude says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has learnt a lot from farming trainings, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Getrude will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.75 acres. The group will also receive a solar light.
