Kedoshi Group's story

Kedoshi is a group of 12 farmers in Kakamega South District represented by Felda. The group has six women and six men. Felda is on the right of the photo with her hand raised. Farming inputs will be delivered to her on credit consisting of the necessary materials to plant a ½ acre of maize, millet and sorghum. Felda joined One Acre Fund during the Long Rains 2012, and is now enrolling in the Long Rains 2013 season. Felda joined One Acre Fund so that she could access the best input prices and grow enough food for the family.

Prior to joining One Acre Fund, Felda was only able to harvest a 1/2 bag of maize per 1/4 acre, but after joining One Acre Fund during the Long Rains 2012, she was able to harvest four bags per 1/4 acre! She hopes that her profits from the 2013 Long Rains season can be used to send her children to school and buy a cow. Felda’s group members will each receive input loans of a ½ acre during the 2013 Long Rains season. In total they will receive inputs for six acres of maize, millet and sorghum.

In this group: Jona, Albert, Charles, David, Felda, Grace, Sabet, Miriam, David, Jenipher, Peter, Beatrice
