A loan of $500 helped a member to purchase hybrid seed and fertilizer for the cultivation of millet, sorghum and sweet potato.

Apalupalut Group's story

Apalupalut Group is located in Teso District. It is a group of 1 woman and 12 men led by Moses pictured on the right with his hand raised. He is receiving an input loan for ½ acre of sweet potato, millet and sorghum cultivation. The 2013 Long Rains season will be Moses’s first season with One Acre Fund. He joined this year in order to gain access to hybrid seed and fertilizer and access the best input prices.

Last year, Moses harvested 1 1/4 bags of maize on 1/2 acre of land. He is excited to improve her harvest as a One Acre Fund farmer during the 2013 Long Rains season. He plans to use the money that he earns from his next harvest to send his children to school and perhaps invest in another business. Moses’s group members will each receive input loans of ½ acre during the 2013 Long Rains season. In total they will receive inputs for 6.5 acres of millet and sorghum.
