Moka Olie B Group's story

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

Pamela takes care of four children at home. She joined One Acre Fund to access fertilizer and hybrid seeds and ensure food security for her family. In the recent 2011 season, Pamela had an excellent maize yield harvesting 26 bags on one acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Pamela was only able to harvest five 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 Pamela 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, Pamela will educate her children, build a house and invest in livestock rearing.

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

In this group: Pamela, Dorice, Pamela, Mary, Melap, Jane, Janetrix, Elizabeth, Fredrick, Annah, Fred*, Beatrice*
