M.m.h.u Group's story

Greetings from M.M.H.U Group in Western Kenya! Rose is the facilitator of the M.M.H.U SHG group. This group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program.

Rose takes care of three 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 16 bags on one acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Rose was only able to harvest three bags of maize on one 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 her maize sales, Rose will buy more livestock assets.

In 2012, the members of M.M.H.U SHG group will each plant between ½ and 1 acre of maize.

In this group: Alice, Doris , John, Judith , Agnes , Mary, Mildred, Rose
