Akingarakin Group's story

Milton’s group has 15 farmers and is located in Teso District. Milton is pictured on the right of the Akingarakin Group with his hand raised. Milton is pictured amongst the three men and 12 women of his group. He will receive input loans which will mean he will be capable of planting ½ an acre with sorghum, millet, and Sweet Potato. The 2013 Long Rains season will be Milton’s first season with One Acre Fund. He joined this year in order to gain access to best input prices of hybrid seed and fertilizer.

Milton thought his harvest last year was poor. He hopes that as a One Acre Fund farmer he can have an excellent harvest. He plans on using future profits from the harvest to send his children to school and perhaps buy cattle. For the 2013 Long Rains season, Milton’s 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: Milton, Moses, Rose, Sarah, Alice, Jackline, Mildah, Mactilda, Violet, Hellen, Christine, Emily, Samwel, Christine, Mildred
