Yuya Group's story

Isaac is pictured amongst the 4 men and 16 women of his group. He will receive input loans capable of planting ½ an acre with sorghum, millet and sweet potatoes. Isaac is a new One Acre Fund farmer and is excited for the 2013 Long Rains season. He joined One Acre Fund in order to grow enough food for his family and use the increased profits to send his children to school.

Isaac thought his harvest last year was poor. He hopes that as a One Acre Fund farmer he can have an excellent harvest. He plans on using future profits from the harvest to send his children to school and repair his home. For the 2013 Long Rains season, Isaac’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.
