Omwini Group's story

Omwini is a group of 14 farmers in the Teso District represented by Emily. The group has 13 women and 1 man. Emily is on the right of the photo with her hand raised. Farming inputs will be delivered to her on credit consisting of the necessary materials to plant ½ acre of sweet potato, millet and sorghum. Emily joined One Acre Fund during the Long Rains 2012, and is now enrolling in the Long Rains 2013 season. Emily joined One Acre Fund so that she could grow enough food for her family and use the increased profits to send her children to school.

Emily described her harvest as excellent last year as a One Acre Fund farmer and hopes for another good year in the 2013 Long Rains season. She hopes that her profits from the 2013 Long Rains season can be used to send her children to school and save for the future. During the 2013 Long Rains season, each group member will receive ½ an acre of agricultural inputs on credit. Emily’s group will receive 7 acres worth of inputs on credit.

In this group: Emily, Mary, Evaline, Felista, Margaret, Roseline, Consefuta, Jackline, Jackline, Jemetrix, Kalisto, Mary, Mildred, Violet
