Mwangaza Group's story

Moses is a member of Mwangaza Group in Webuye District. He is pictured with 15 One Acre Fund farmers, 10 women and five men. Moses is standing on the right with his hand raised. He is receiving an input loan for ½ acre of sweet potato, millet, and sorghum cultivation. Moses is a new One Acre Fund farmer and is excited for the 2013 Long Rains season. He joined One Acre Fund in order to gain access to hybrid seed and fertilizer and use increased profits to send his children to school.

Moses managed to harvest five bags of maize on one acre of land last year. As a One Acre Fund farmer, he hopes to harvest even more. He plans to use the money that he earns from his next harvest to send his children to school and perhaps buy a cow. For the 2013 Long Rains season, Moses’ group members will take input loans of ½ acre each. In total, this group will receive input loans for use on 7.5 acres of land.

In this group: Moses, Violet, Lydia, Mary, Julia, Penina, Irene, Reuben, Samson, Timinah, Mary, Mary, Peter, Phillis, Stephen
