Mutekesi B Group's story

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

John takes care of four children at home. He joined One Acre Fund due to One Acre Fund’s best prices and in order to ensure food security for his family. In the recent 2011 season, John had a good maize yield, harvesting 10 bags on ½ an acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, John was only able to harvest 7 ½ 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 John 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 maize sales, John will educate his children.

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

In this group: Abraham, Alice, Bety, Hellen, Joan, Violet
