Amani Group's story

Amani is a group of ten farmers in Kakamega South District. The group consists of nine women and one man. Everline is the group representative.

Everline is the woman with her hand raised in the photograph. She will receive farming inputs on credit, which will consist of the necessary materials to plant ½ acre of maize, millet, and sorghum. Everline joined One Acre Fund during the 2010 Long Rains, and is now enrolling in the 2013 Long Rains season. Everline joined One Acre Fund to gain access to hybrid seed and fertilizer and because of the convenient input delivery time.

Everline described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have an even better one this year. She plans on using future profits from the harvest to send her children to school and buy a cow.

For the 2013 Long Rains season, Everline’s group members will each take input loans for ½ an acre. In total, this group will receive input loans for use on five acres of land.

In this group: Everline, Andonina, Ruth, Sarah, Hellen, Lucy, Elemina, Joseph, Susan, Dorcas
