Imani Farmers Group's story

Robai is a member of the Imani Farmers Group in Kakamega North District. She is pictured with 20 One Acre Fund farmers - all of them are women. Robai is standing on the right with her hand raised. She is receiving an input loan for ½ acre of sweet potatoes, millet and sorghum cultivation. Robai is a new One Acre Fund farmer and is excited for the 2013 Long Rains season. She joined One Acre Fund in order to gain access to hybrid seed and fertilizer and grow enough food for the family.

Last year, Robai harvested 4 bags of maize on 1/2 acre of land. She is excited to improve her harvest as a One Acre Fund farmer during the 2013 Long Rains season. She hopes that her profits from the 2013 Long Rains season can be used to send her children to school and to buy a cow. For the 2013 Long Rains season, Robai’s group members will take input loans of ½ acre each. In total, this group will receive input loans for use on 10 acres of land.
