Rosemary's Group's story

Rosemary is 56 years old and has three children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by eight farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya.

Rosemary has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now having joined the program for the first time in 2013. This decision was largely a result of her desire to have access to the best seed prices, and although she described her last harvest as poor due to bad weather conditions, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Rosemary also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Rosemary's Group will be able to receive a total of two solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 6.75 acres.
