Kelumu Group's story

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

Dorece takes care of six children at home. She joined One Acre Fund in order to access fertilizer and hybrid seeds and ensure food security for her family. In the recent 2011 season, Dorece had a good maize yield harvesting six bags on 1/2 acre of land. Before joining One Ace Fund, Dorece was only able to harvest one bag of maize on 1/2 acre of land.

With this loan, One Acre Fund will purchase fertilizer, seeds, and other important inputs to distribute to Dorece 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, Dorece will educate her children and invest in livestock rearing.

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

In this group: Beatrice, Dorece, Eliud, Isaac, Joshua, Mary, Mary, Rose, Simon
