Nabangala B Group's story

Greetings from Nabangala B Group in Western Kenya! Elina is the facilitator of the Nabangala B group. This group joined One Acre Fund in 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program. Elina joined One Acre Fund in order to access fertilizer and hybrid seeds and ensure food security for her family. In the recent 2011 season, Elina had a very good maize yield harvesting 18 bags on one acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Elina was only able to harvest 10 bags of maize on that land.

With this loan, One Acre Fund will purchase fertilizer, seeds, and other important inputs to distribute to Elina 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 Elina will ensure food security and invest in livestock rearing.

In 2012, the members of Nabangala B group will each plant between ½ and one acre of maize.

In this group: Elina, Francis, Eliud, Esther, Mary
