Rose's Group's story

Rose's Group is formed by 13 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Rose, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 33 years old and has six children. Rose has been a farmer for 14 years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Rose isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2017 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to save more money ever since. This year, Rose 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 reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Rose's Group will purchase a total of five solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 10.5 acres.
