Bidii Group's story

Bidii is a group of 34 farmers in Kakamega South District represented by Jane. The group has 26 women and 8 men. Jane 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 one half acre of maize, millet and sorghum. Jane is a new One Acre Fund farmer and is excited for the 2013 Long Rains season. She joined One Acre Fund in order to gain access to hybrid seed and fertilizer and access the best input prices.

Last year, Jane harvested three bags of maize on one acre of land. She is excited to improve her harvest as a One Acre Fund farmer during the 2013 Long Rains season. She plans to use the money that she earns from her next harvest to send her children to school and to help the neighbors who are in need with food and also create awareness to those who are eager to join OAF. Jane’s group members will each receive input loans of one half acre during the 2013 Long Rains season. In total they will receive inputs for 17 acres of maize and sorghum.
