Wesakulila Group's story

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

Amos takes care of seven children at home. 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, Amos had an excellent maize yield harvesting 18 bags on one acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Amos was only able to harvest three 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 Amos 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, Amos will educate his children, ensure food security and invest in livestock rearing.

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

In this group: Aggrey, Amos, David, Viviana, Jane, Mary, Pamellah, Rajab, Rodah, Carolyne
