Tuungane Group's story

Tuungane Group is located in Webuye District. It is a group of 14 women and 2 men led by Rabecca, pictured on the right with her hand raised. She is receiving an input loan for ½ acre of sweet potato, millet, and sorghum cultivation. Rabecca first enrolled with One Acre Fund during the 2012 Long Rains and is now preparing to be a One Acre Fund farmer during the 2013 Long Rains season. Rabecca joined One Acre Fund in order to gain access to hybrid seed and fertilizer, and also because their group work makes working easier.

Rabecca described her harvest as very good last year, but she 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, perhaps, buy some more land for farming. Tuungane Group members will each receive input loans of ½ acre during the 2013 Long Rains season. In total, they will receive inputs for 8 acres of sweet potato, millet and sorghum.

In this group: Rabecca, Charles, Edith, Dorice, Agnetta, Grace, Grace, Mary, Velma, Nichodemus, Hellen, Grace, Fridah, Alice, Janepher, Florence
