Rose's Group's story

Pictured above is Rose, often described as an extremely reliable person. She is 48 years old and has 7 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Rose is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means she will be able to earn enough to send her children to school, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Rose says that she is happy to have made this decision because, since she first joined in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Rose will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.75 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 5 solar lights.
