Naumo Group's story

Receive greetings from Naumo Group in Western Kenya! Rose is the facilitator of the group. This group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program.

Rose takes care of 11 children at home. She joined One Acre Fund in order to access fertilizer and hybrid seeds and ensure food security for her family. In the recent 2011 season, Rose had an excellent maize yield harvesting 20 bags on 1 acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Rose was only able to harvest 5 bags of maize on 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.

With income from maize sales, Rose will educate her children and invest in livestock.

In 2012, the members of Naumo Group will each plant between ½ and 1 acre of maize.

In this group: Rose, Gladys, Glanet, Daina
