A loan of $300 helped a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to grow maize, sorghum and millet.

Rohama Group's story

These three farmers pictured are part of a Nuru International group of farmers called Rohama. They came together in order to grow socially and economically through agriculture.

Charles, who is holding up his hand, is 62-years-old. He is married with eight children, four of whom are in school. He solely depends on farming to earn a living and is, therefore, keen on practicing better farming methods. During the 2014 long rains, Charles will plant a one acre farm, with maize in ½ acre and sorghum and millet in ¼ acre each.

He is therefore requesting a loan to enable him purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizers. With these farm inputs, he is hopeful that the harvest will be good and he will be able to ensure food security for his family. He will sell the surplus and obtain money to pay for part of the school fees.

In this group: Hezron, Daniel, Charles
