Elizabeth's Group's story

Elizabeth is 37 years old and is often described as a very hardworking individual. She has two children and is married. As a group leader, Elizabeth is representing her group of 11 farmers in Webuye District in Kenya, and is very excited to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year. The decision to join One Acre Fund was largely a result of Elizabeth's desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Apart from receiving farming inputs, she is also purchasing a solar light as part of her loan, which is very exciting to her as she will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits that she gains from this year’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school. Elizabeth and her group will receive a total of 9 solar lights as well as input loans of maize and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.5 acres.
