Naburereya A Group's story

George is a member of a group of 12 farmers located in Bungoma South District. George is pictured on the right of Naburereya A Group with his hand raised amongst the four men and eight women of his group. He will receive input loans capable of planting half an acre with sorghum, millet, and maize.

George first enrolled with One Acre Fund during the 2009 Long Rains and is now preparing to be a One Acre Fund farmer during the 2013 Long Rains season. George joined One Acre Fund in order to grow enough food for the family and he used his increased profits to send his children to school.

Prior to joining One Acre Fund, George was only able to harvest three bags of maize per half acre, but after joining One Acre Fund during the Long Rains 2012, he was able to harvest seven bags per half acre. He plans on using future profits from the harvest to send his children to school and save for the future.

During the 2013 Long Rains season, each group member will receive half an acre of agricultural inputs on credit. George’s group will receive six acres worth of inputs on credit.

In this group: Goerge, Mildred, Agnes, John, Margaret, Julius, Alice, Calistus, Christine, Emily, Julieta, Rosina
