Khaka Shg Group's story

Anthony is the facilitator of the Khaka SHG group. Anthony and his group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program. Anthony takes care of eight children at home. He joined One Acre Fund to access One Acre Fund’s best prices, ensure food security for his family and later educate them. In the recent 2011 season, Anthony had an excellent maize yield harvesting 10 bags on ½ acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Anthony was only able to harvest 2½ 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 Anthony 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, Anthony will educate his children and invest in livestock rearing. In 2012, the members of Khaka SHG group will each plant maize plots between ½ and 1 acre of land.

In this group: Anthony, Dorcas, Beatrice, Beta, Christine, Consolata, Felix, Gabriel, Grace, Mary
