Wakulima Group's story

Seen here among his Wakulima Group members, David is on the right with his hand raised. The seventeen members of his group, eleven women and six men, are farmers in Kakamega South District. For the 2013 Long Rains planting season, David’s group members will each receive loans to support planting one-half acre of land. This works out to a group loan sustaining eight and a half acres of land.

David joined One Acre Fund during the Long Rains of 2012 so that he could grow enough food for his family and use his increase in profits to send his children to school. He described his harvest last year as a good one. He is now enrolling in the Long Rains 2013 planting season program. With his enrollment he will receive on credit enough seed and fertilizer to plant one-half acre of maize, millet and sorghum.

David hopes for another good year in the 2013 Long Rains season. He hopes that the profits he earns during this time can be used to continue sending his children to school and buy a cow.
