Nabuloli Adult Group's story

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

Everlyne takes care of six children at home. She joined One Acre Fund in order to improve her agricultural skills and access fertilizer and hybrid seeds to ensure food security for her family. In the recent 2011 season, Everlyne had an excellent maize yield, harvesting 15 bags on 1 acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Everlyne 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 Everlyne 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, Everlyne will repair her house and invest in livestock rearing.

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

Everlyne is pictured in the photograph with her group members.
