Shiungulukha Group's story

Shiungulukha Group is located in Kakamega South District. It is a group of 13 women and 4 men led by Maliana pictured on the right with her hand raised. She is receiving an input loan for ½ acre of maize, millet, and sorghum cultivation. Maliana first enrolled with One Acre Fund during the 2010 Long Rains and is now preparing to be a One Acre Fund farmer during the 2013 Long Rains season. Maliana joined One Acre Fund in order to grow enough food for the family.

Maliana described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have an even better one this year. She plans to use the money that she earns from her next harvest to send her children to school and save for the future. During the 2013 Long Rains season, each group member will receive ½ an acre of agricultural inputs on credit. Maliana’s group will receive 8 1/2 acres worth of inputs on credit.

In this group: Maliana, Melsa, Francis, Fredrick, Ruth, Aggrey, Clide, Rosemary, Persian, Clementina, Joseph, Marceline, Mary, Nicolas, Naume, Victoria, Angeline
