A loan of $1,150 helped a member to source farming inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer, at low prices for the 2012 planting season.

Amua B Group's story

Greetings from Amua B Group in Western Kenya! Annet is the facilitator of the Amua B group. This group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program.

Annet takes care of eight 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, Annet had an excellent maize yield harvesting 16 bags on one acre of land. Before joining One Ace Fund, Annet 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 Annet 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, Annet will ensure food security and save for the future.

In 2012, the members of Amua B group will each plant between ½ and 1 acre of maize.

In the above photograph, Annet is pictured with her group members.
