Rose's Group's story

Pictured above is Rose, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 10 farmers in the Chwele District of Kenya. She is a mother to five children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Rose joined One Acre Fund in 2010 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 been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Rose plans to send her children to school.

Between the 10 farmers in Rose's Group, a total of 5.5 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 8 solar lights.
