A loan of $950 helped a member to source farming inputs, such as seeds and fertilizer, at low prices for the 2012 planting season.

K Ndege A Group's story

Edward is the facilitator of the K Ndege A group. Edward and his group joined One Acre Fund in the year 2011 and will re-enroll in the 2012 program.

Edward takes care of two 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, Edward had a good maize yield harvesting five bags on ½ acre of land. Before joining One Acre Fund, Edward was only able to harvest 3½ 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 Edward 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, Edward will educate his children and invest in livestock rearing.

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

In the photograph above, Edward is pictured with his group members.

In this group: Shadrack , Christabel, Chrispo, David, Dickson, Edward, Eliud, Rasoa
