Bulondo Bii Group's story

Bulondo Bii Group is located in Bungoma South District. It is a group of nine women and one man, led by Joyce, who is pictured on the right with her hand raised. She is receiving an input loan for ½ acre of maize, millet, and sorghum cultivation. Joyce is a new One Acre Fund farmer and is excited for the 2013 Long Rains season. She joined One Acre Fund in order to work as a group, so that she could grow enough food for her family.

Prior to joining One Acre Fund, Joyce was only able to harvest two bags of maize per half-acre, but after joining One Acre Fund during the Long Rains of 2012, she was able to harvest seven bags per half-acre. She plans to use the profits from future harvests, to send her children to school and to save for the future. During the 2013 Long Rains season, each group member will receive ½ an acre of agricultural inputs, on credit. Bulondo Bii Group will receive a total of five acres' worth of inputs, on credit.

In this group: Joyce, Roselyne, Ann, Everlyne, Margaret, Peneteta, Rose, Scolastica, Amos, Everlyne
