Wesakulila B Group's story

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

Neddy is the mother of two children. 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, Neddy had an excellent maize yield harvesting 10 bags on 1/2 an acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Neddy was only able to harvest two bags 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 Neddy 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, Neddy will educate her children, ensure food security and invest in livestock rearing.

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

Neddy is pictured with her group members in the photograph as shown.
