Rose's Group's story

Pictured above is Rose, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 64 years old and has 8 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 7 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Rose is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund. This means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Rose says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2018, she has gained alot of respect in her community. This has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Rose will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 3.75 acres. Given that a member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
