A loan of $1,100 helped a member to buy farming inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer, at low prices for the 2012 planting season.

Ageuni Group's story

Christine is the facilitator of Ageuni group. Christine and her group joined One Acre Fund in 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program.

With this loan, One Acre Fund will purchase fertilizer, seeds, and other important inputs to distribute to Christine 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.

Christine takes care of six children at home. She joined One Acre Fund to have access to its low prices, to ensure food security for her family, and, later, to educate them. In the recent 2011 season, Christine had an excellent maize yield harvesting 12 bags on one acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Christine was only able to harvest eight bags of maize on one acre of land.

With income from maize sales, Christine will educate her children, build a house, and invest in livestock rearing.

In 2012, the members of Ageuni group will each plant maize plots between ½ and one acre of land.
