A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Rosa's Group's story

Pictured above is Rosa, often described as an extremely resourceful person. She is 56 years old and has six children. She is representing her group of 10 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Rosa is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund as this means she is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Rosa says she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Rosa 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 6 acres. With this loan, the group also will receive a solar light.
