Weyeta Group's story
Rose takes care of six children at home. In the recent 2011 season, Rose had a good maize yield harvesting 8 ½ bags on ½ an acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Rose was only able to harvest 6 bags of maize on ½ an acre of land. She joined One Acre Fund because of One Acre Fund’s best prices and in order to ensure food security for her family. With income from maize sales, Rose will educate her children and invest in livestock rearing. Rose is the facilitator of the Weyeta group. Rose and her group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program. In 2012, the members of Weyeta group will each plant maize plots between ½ and 1 acre of land. With this loan, One Acre Fund will purchase fertilizer, seeds, and other important inputs to distribute to Rose 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.
