Pamba W.g Group's story

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

Irene takes care of two 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, Irene had a very good maize yield, harvesting 16 bags on 1 acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Irene was only able to harvest 10 bags of maize on 1 acre of land.

With this loan, One Acre Fund will purchase fertilizer, seeds, and other important inputs to distribute to Irene 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 maize sales, Irene will educate her children and pay back her loans.

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