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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Roselydah's Group's story

Roselydah's Group is formed by 13 farmers in Webuye District and is being represented by Roselydah, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 40 years old and has 6 children. Roselydah has been a farmer for 5 years and is often referred to as a very experienced farmer.

Roselydah isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has had more profits from each harvest ever since. This year, Roselydah will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have an overall improved quality of life.

Using this loan, Roselydah's Group will purchase a total of 10 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.5 acres.
