Wesakulila Group's story

Wesakulila is a group of 10 farmers in Bungoma South District represented by James. The group has 4 women and 6 men. James is on the right of the photo with his hand raised. Farming supplies will be delivered to him on credit, consisting of the necessary materials to plant ½ an acre of maize, millet and sorghum. James is a new One Acre Fund farmer and is excited for the 2013 Long Rains season. He joined One Acre Fund in order to gain access to hybrid seed and fertilizer, access the best supply prices, grow enough food for the family and use the increased profits to send his children to school.

Last year, James harvested 12 bags of maize on 1 acre of land. He is excited to improve his harvest as a One Acre Fund farmer during the 2013 Long Rains season. He hopes that his profits from the 2013 Long Rains season can be used to send his children to school, to invest in a cow and to buy more land for the family. James’ group members will each receive loans of ½ acre during the 2013 Long Rains season. In total they will receive supplies for 5 acres of maize and sorghum.

In this group: James, Onala, Anjelina, Chrispinus, Mary, Bilasio, Clare, Judicas, Charis, Mathias
