Elite Group's story

Praxidese’s group has 11 farmers and is located in Teso District. Praxidese is pictured on the right of Elite Group, with her hand raised. Praxidese is pictured amongst the two men and nine women of her group.

She will receive input loans capable of planting 0.5 acres with sorghum, millet, and sweet potato. The 2013 Long Rains season will be Praxidese’s first season with One Acre Fund. She joined this year in order to grow enough food for the family and to use increased profits to send her children to school.

Praxidese described her harvest last year as good, but hopes she can have an even better one as a One Acre Fund farmer. She plans to use the money that she earns from her next harvest to send her children to school and to save for the future.

For the 2013 Long Rains season, Elite Group members will take input loans of 0.5 acres each. In total, this group will receive input loans for use on 5.5 acres of land.

In this group: Praxidese, Clarice, Anacletus, Stephen, Jesca, Judith, Redepta, Salome, Scholastica, Florence, Janefesa
