A loan of $975 helped a member to source farming inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer, at low prices for the 2012 planting season.

Angaza A Farmers Group's story

Chenge is the facilitator of the Angaza A Farmers group. Chenge and his group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program.

Chenge takes care of 10 children at home. He joined One Acre Fund to access fertilizer and hybrid seed. In the recent 2011 season, Chenge had an excellent maize yield harvesting 10 bags on ½ acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Chenge was only able to harvest three bags of maize on ½ acre of land.

With this loan, One Acre Fund will purchase fertilizer, seeds, and other important inputs to distribute to Chenge and his 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 his maize sales, Chenge will educate his children.

In 2012, the members of Angaza A Farmers group will each plant maize plots between ½ and 1 acre of land.
