A loan helped to gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Kinaibei's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Kinaibei is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2016 and, although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Kinaibei is often described by his community as a very reliable person and decided to be the one to represent his group because he likes being a leader. Like many of his fellow farmers, Kinaibei decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

This loan will not only help Kinaibei but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.5 acres of land.
