Rose's Group's story

Rose is a 32-year-old proud mother of 2 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very resourceful person, and is representing her group of 6 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Rose has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Rose described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to save more money for the future.

With this loan, Rose’s Group will be able to plant a total of 1 acres of land and purchase a total of 5 solar lights.
