Rosemary's Group's story

Rosemary, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 13 farmers in Webuye District. She is 53 years old, married and has nine children.

Rosemary likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2013 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Rosemary plans to use the profits from this coming season to rent more land to cultivate.

In total, Rosemary’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate four acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 11 solar lights.
