Elizabeth's Group's story

Pictured above is Elizabeth, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 42 years old and has seven children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of six farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Elizabeth is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Elizabeth says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has learned a lot from farming trainings, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Elizabeth 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 2.5 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.

In this group: Elizabeth, Benard, Annety, Macas, Irine, Fridah

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
