Rosemary's Group's story

Pictured above is Rosemary, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is a mother to 7 children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Rosemary joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has a large farm group for support. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Rosemary plans to send her children to school.

Between the 10 farmers in Rosemary's group, a total of 4.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
