Rose's Group's story

Rose is 32 years old and has 3 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 7 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. Rose has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2013. This decision was largely a result of her desire to earn enough to feed her family and, although she described her last harvest as poor, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Rose also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have an overall improved quality of life. Obtaining this loan means that Rose's Group will be able to receive a total of 5 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4.25 acres.
