Abakhalabani Group's story

Jacktone is a member of Abakhalabani Group in Busia District. He is pictured with 20 One Acre Fund farmers, 10 women and 10 men. Jacktone is standing on the right with his hand raised. He is receiving a loan for farm inputs to cultivate ½ acre of maize and sorghum. Jacktone is a new One Acre Fund farmer and is excited about the 2013 Long Rains season. He joined One Acre Fund in order to gain access to hybrid seeds and fertilizer and to rest assured of reliable input delivery, to grow enough food for the family and ro use increased profits to send his children to school.

Jacktone described his harvest last year as good, but hopes he can have an even better one as a One Acre Fund farmer. He plans to spend the money that he earns from his next harvest on sending his children to school, repairing his home, buying livestock and perhaps investing in another business. During the 2013 Long Rains season, each group member will receive agricultural inputs on credit for ½ acre. Jacktone’s group will receive 10 acres worth of inputs on credit.
