Mathumuni Group's story

Eunice's group has 20 farmers and is located in Lugari District. Eunice is pictured on the right of the Mathumuni Group with her hand raised. The 2013 Long Rains season will be Eunice’s first season with One Acre Fund. She joined this year in order to gain access to hybrid seeds and fertilizer that will allow her to grow enough food for her family.

Eunice described her harvest last year as good, but hopes she can have an even better one as a One Acre Fund farmer. She plans to spend the money that she earns from her next harvest on sending her children to school, saving for the future and perhaps investing in another business. For the 2013 Long Rains season, Eunice’s group members will take input loans of ½ acre each. In total, this group will receive input loans for use on 10 acres of land.

In this group: Eunice, Gladys, Irine, Ezinas, John, Helen, Daina, Alice, Emily, Pauline, Thomas, Geoffry, David, Alice, Anne, Wilbrodah, Susan, Alice, Simon, Violet
