Beatrice's Group's story

Beatrice is 50 years old and has eight children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Beatrice has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2011. This decision was largely as a result of her desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods.

Although she described her last harvest as excellent, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Beatrice also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Beatrice's Group will be able to receive a total of seven solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 6.25 acres.

In this group: Beatrice, Amos, Eunice, Linet, Martha, Eliud N, Janet, Sarah, Alice N, Hellen, Gabriel, Hudson, Elizabeth


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
