Rose's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Rose's Group's story

Rose is 36 years old and has six children. She has been a farmer for 10 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual.

Even though Rose is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by nine farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Rose started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2011. She decided to do so because she wanted to earn enough to send her children to school.

Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

Rose’s group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 5.25 acres of land. 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 five solar lights.
