Beatrice's Group's story

Pictured above is Beatrice, often described as an extremely reliable person. She is 51 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 14 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Beatrice is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Beatrice says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Beatrice will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 10.5 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 2 solar lights.

In this group: Beatrice, Phanice, Beatrice, Catherine , Danstan, Evans, Roselika, Everlyne, Joseph, Nancy, Dismas, Peter, Violet, Yesse

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
