Eliseus' Group's story

Pictured above is Eliseus, who is often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 48 years old and has 9 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 15 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Eliseus is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund as this means that he is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Eliseus says that he is happy to have made that decision, because, since he first joined in 2016, he has learnt a lot from farming training, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Eliseus will use the profits from this season to repair his home.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 10.25 acres. With this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.

In this group: Eliseus, Paskalia, Joselyne, Eric, Speta , Catherine, Francis, Joseph, Maximilla, Margaret, Pamela, Moses, Patrisia , Quinto, Annah
