Patrick's Group's story

Patrick is 53 years old and has 2 children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 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 formed by 19 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Patrick started working alongside One Acre Fund in 2013 and decided to do so because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, he has seen his life improve, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year, he decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader.

Patrick ’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant 15 acres of land. Additionally, the group will receive 2 solar lights.
