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


A loan helped to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvest season, as well as a solar light.


Rosemary's Group's story

Rosemary is a 34-year-old proud mother of four children. She is a group leader, often described as a very reliable person, and is representing her group of 13 farmers in Alego District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, she has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Rosemary described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Rosemary’s Group will be able to plant a total of 9.5 acres of land and purchase a total of eight solar lights.
