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, as well as a solar light.

Rose's Group's story

Rose is 36 years old and has four children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Sirisia District, Kenya.

Rose has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2010. This decision was largely a result of her desire to have access to the best seed prices.

Although she described her last harvest as very good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund.

Rose also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have an overall improved quality of life. She will also be able to buy a cow.

Obtaining this loan means that Rose's Group will be able to receive a total of six solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of eight acres.
