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

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

Rose's Group's story

Rose 's Group is formed by 8 farmers in Matete District and is being represented by Rose , who is the group leader pictured above. She is 60 years old and has 9 children. Rose has been a farmer for 20 years and is often referred to as a very resourceful person.

Rose isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2016 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, 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 4 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 3.25 acres.
