Eshiamboko Group's story

Regina’s group has 15 farmers and is located in Kakamega North District. Regina is pictured on the right of Eshiamboko Group with her hand raised. Regina is pictured amongst the five men and 10 women of her group. She will receive input loans capable of planting a half acre with sorghum, millet, and sweet potatoes.

Regina first enrolled with One Acre Fund during the 2011 Long Rains and is now preparing to be a One Acre Fund farmer during the 2013 Long Rains season. Regina joined One Acre Fund in order to gain access to hybrid seed and fertilizer and grow enough food for the family.

Regina described her harvest as good last year, but she believes she can have an even better one this year. She plans on using future profits from the harvest to buy a cow and send her children to school.

For the 2013 Long Rains season, Regina’s group members will take input loans of a half acre each. In total, this group will receive input loans for use on 7 1/2 acres of land.
