Andimi Group's story

Andimi is a group of 13 farmers in Kakamega South District represented by Middy. The group has eleven women and two men. Middy 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 ½ acre of maize, millet and sorghum. Middy joined One Acre Fund during the Long Rains 2011 and is now enrolling in the Long Rains 2013 season. Middy joined One Acre Fund so that she could grow enough food for her family and gain access to hybrid seed and fertilizer. Prior to joining One Acre Fund, Middy was only able to harvest one bag of maize per 3/4 acre, but after joining One Acre Fund during the Long Rains 2012, she was able to harvest five bags per 3/4 acre! She plans on using future profits from the harvest to send her children to school and buy a cow. Middy’s group members will each receive input loans for ½ acre during the 2013 Long Rains season. In total, they will receive inputs for 6 1/2 acres of maize, millet and sorghum.

In this group: Middy, Peninah, Belita, Bibiana, Petronila, Salome, Rose, Winfrida, Anjeline, Francis, Mary, Karimendi, Wilfrida
