A loan of $1,175 helped a member to source farming inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer, at low prices for the 2012 planting season.

Njete Women Group's story

George is the facilitator of the Njete Women group. George and his group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program.

With this loan, One Acre Fund will purchase fertilizer, seeds, and other important inputs to distribute to George 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.

George takes care of six children at home. He joined One Acre Fund in order to grow enough food to ensure food security for his family and later educate his children. In the recent 2011 season, George had a very good maize yield harvesting 16 bags on 1 acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, George was only able to harvest 8 bags of maize on 1 acre of land.

With income from maize sales, George will educate his children and save for future use.

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