A loan of $550 helped a member to source farming inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer, at low prices for the 2012 planting season.

Krombon Group's story

Clement is the facilitator of the Krombon group. Clement and his group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program.

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

Clement takes care of nine children at home. He joined One Acre Fund in order to grow enough food to ensure food security for his family and to have a difference in the production rate of his harvest. In the recent 2011 season, Clement had an excellent maize yield harvesting 17 bags on one acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Clement was only able to harvest seven bags of maize on one acre of land.

With income from his maize sales, Clement will educate his children and save for future use.

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