Tuinuane Women Group's story

Greetings from Tuinuane Women Group in Western Kenya! Timothy is the facilitator of the group. This group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program.

Timothy is a father of two children. He joined One Acre Fund in order to access fertilizer and hybrid seeds and ensure food security for his family. In the recent 2011 season, Timothy had a good maize yield harvesting 14 bags on 3/4 acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, he was only able to harvest one bag of maize on 3/4 acre of land. With this loan, One Acre Fund will purchase fertilizer, seeds, and other important inputs to distribute to Timothy 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, Timothy will educate his children, ensure food security and invest in livestock rearing.

In 2012, the members of Tuinuane Women group will each plant between ½ and 1 acre of maize.

In this group: Sivenza, Sofia, Timothy, Allan, Jacob, Jareti, Peter, Julia, Lumumba, Mugalo , Ridah
