A loan helped a member to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.


Beatrice's Group's story

Pictured above is Beatrice, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very friendly person.

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 harvesting season, Beatrice plans to send her children to school.

Between the 12 farmers in Beatrice's Group, a total of 15 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
