Tete W.g. Group's story
Greetings from Tete W.G. Group in Western Kenya! This group joined Kiva partner One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program. Ann is the facilitator of the Tete W.G. Group. She takes care of six children at home. She joined One Acre Fund due to One Acre Fund's best prices and to grow enough to feed the family. In the recent 2011 season, Ann had a very good maize yield harvesting nine bags on half an acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Ann was only able to harvest three bags of maize on half an acre of land. With this loan, One Acre Fund will purchase fertilizer, seeds, and other important inputs to distribute to Ann and her group during Kenya’s next planting season in February 2012. The distribution of farming inputs is part of One Acre Fund’s integrated agriculture package, which includes training, reliable input supply (such as fertilizer and seeds), credit, and insurance. With income from maize sales, Ann will educate her children. In 2012, the members of Tete W.G. Group will each plant between half and one acre of maize. In the photograph, Ann is pictured with her group members. The person standing on the far left is the field officer.
