A loan of $725 helped a member to source farming inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer, at low prices for the 2012 planting season.

Munyofwe B Group's story

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

Albert takes care of five children at home. He joined One Acre Fund to access One Acre Fund’s best prices and to ensure food security for his family. In the recent 2011 season, Albert had a very good maize yield harvesting eight bags on ½ acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Albert was only able to harvest 4½ bags of maize on ½ acre of land.

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

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