Tujisaindiye Group's story

Rinah is a member of Tujisaindiye Group in the Teso District. She is pictured with 22 One Acre Fund farmers, 14 women and 8 men. Rinah is standing on the right with her hand raised. She is receiving an input loan for a ½ acre of millet, sorghum and sweet potato cultivation. Rinah is a new One Acre Fund farmer and is excited for the 2013 Long Rains season. She joined One Acre Fund in order to access the best input prices and grow enough food for the family.

Rinah managed to harvest six bags of maize on two acres of land last year. As a One Acre Fund farmer, she hopes to harvest even more! She plans to use the money that she earns from her next harvest to send her children to school and invest in livestock. For the 2013 Long Rains season, Rinah’s group members will take input loans of a ½ acre each. In total, this group will receive input loans for use on 11 acres of land.
