A loan of $1,025 helped a member to source farming inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer, at low prices for the 2012 planting season.

Lugari Farmer A Group's story

Rajab is the facilitator of the Lugari Farmer A group. Rajab and his group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program.

Rajab takes care of five 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, Rajab had a very good maize yield harvesting 8 bags on ½ an acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Rajab was only able to harvest 4 bags of maize on ½ an acre of land.

With this loan, One Acre Fund will purchase fertilizer, seeds, and other important inputs to distribute to Rajab 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, Rajab will educate his children and save for the future.

In 2012, the members of Lugari Farmer A group will each plant maize plots of between ½ and 1 acre of land.
