A loan of $600 helped a member to source farming inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer, at low prices for the 2012 planting season.

Lindana W / G Group's story

Selina takes care of eight children at home. She joined One Acre Fund in order to grow enough to secure food for her family and to have additional maize profits to send her children to school. In the recent 2011 season, Selina had a very good maize yield harvesting 20 bags on 1 acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Selina was only able to harvest 4 bags of maize on 1 acre of land. With income from maize sales, Selina will invest in livestock rearing and buy more land to allow saving for future use.

Selina is the facilitator of the Lindana W/G group. She is in the photograph with her group members. Selina and her group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program. In 2012, the members of Lindana W/G group will each plant maize plots between ½ and 1 acre of land.

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