Akiduku Group's story

Roselyne is pictured on the right with her hand raised among her Akiduku Group members. The 12 of them, 9 women and 3 men, are farmers in Teso District. Farming inputs will be delivered to Roselyne on credit consisting of the necessary materials to plant ½ acre of sweet potatoes, millet and sorghum. She joined One Acre Fund during the Long Rains 2012, and is now enrolling in the Long Rains 2013 season. She joined One Acre Fund so that she could gain access to hybrid seed and fertilizer and grow enough food for the family.

Roselyne described her harvest as 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 to save for the future. During the 2013 Long Rains season, each group member will receive ½ an acre of agricultural inputs on credit. Roselyne’s group will receive 6 acres worth of inputs on credit.

In this group: Roselyne, Mary, Gerald, Obed, Janet, Granda, Roseline, Catherine, Consolata, Annet, Phanice, Geofrey
