Beatrice's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Beatrice's Group's story

Pictured above is Beatrice, who, as a group leader, is representing her group of 16 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. Beatrice is known by her community as a very experienced farmer, and decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community.

Initially, Beatrice joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved; especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Beatrice plans to buy more land to cultivate.

Among the 16 farmers in Beatrice's Group, a total of 7.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
