Ngeibach Group's story

Roselyne’s group has 4 farmers and is located in the Teso District. Roselyne is pictured on the right of the Ngeibach Group with her hand raised. Roselyne is pictured amongst the 1 man and 3 women of her group. The field officer is standing on the left of the photo. She will receive input loans capable of planting a ½ an acre with millet, sorghum, and sweet potatoes. Roselyne first enrolled with One Acre Fund during the 2012 Long Rains and is now preparing to be a One Acre Fund farmer during 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.

Roselyne described her harvest as very good last year, but believes she can have an even better one this year. She plans to use the money that she earns from her next harvest to send her children to school and repair her home. Roselyne’s group members will each receive input loans of a ½ acre during the 2013 Long Rains season. In total, they will receive inputs for 2 acres of millet and sorghum.

In this group: Roselyne, Mary, Tadeous, Brenda
