Rosoa's Group's story

Pictured above is Rosoa, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya. She is married and is a mother to 3 children, known by her community as a very experienced farmer. Initially, Rosoa joined One Acre Fund in 2009 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has learnt a lot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Rosoa plans to send her children to school. Between the 14 farmers in Rosoa's Group, a total of 12.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 6 solar lights.
