Nabaleka Group's story

Isha is a member of Nabaleka Group in Bungoma South District. She is pictured with 10 One Acre Fund farmers, 8 women and 2 men. Isha is standing on the right with her hand raised. She is receiving an input loan for ½ acre of maize, millet, and sorghum cultivation. Isha is a new One Acre Fund farmer and is excited about the 2013 Long Rains season. She joined One Acre Fund in order to access the best input prices and grow enough food for the family.

Isha described her harvest last year as good. She hopes as a One Acre Fund farmer she is able to join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. She hopes that her profits from the 2013 Long Rains season can be used to send her children to school and invest in another business. For the 2013 Long Rains season, Isha‘s group members will take input loans of ½ acre each. In total, this group will receive input loans for use on 5 acres of land.

In this group: Fatuma, Yusuf, Hamisi, Isha, Janepher, Mwanahawa, Mwanaisha, Peledina, Zainabu, Jenita
