Busia 2014 RCT results

Impact study
Results of our maize yields study in Busia district, Kenya, 2014

Results from an IDinsight analysis of data from One Acre Fund’s (1AF’s) evaluation conducted in Busia, Kenya. One Acre Fund provides input packages on loan coupled with training to small scale farmers to improve yields. In 2014, 1AF implemented an evaluation across 6 sites in Busia (4 treatment, 2 control) with 570 farmers. Three surveys were conducted throughout

the growing season with the final harvest survey collecting information on maize yields for each farmer. 1AF engaged IDinsight to analyze data from these three surveys to generate an estimate of the 1AF program’s impact on maize yields.
