Consolata's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Consolata has worked alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2015. Even though she is the only person featured in the above photo, she is actually representing a group of 12 farmers from Teso District, Kenya.

Consolata is often described in her community as a very hardworking individual. She decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. Like many of her fellow farmers, Consolata decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. She hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to buy a cow.

This loan will not only help Consolata, but the entire group. They will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 8.5 acres of land.
