Roshel's Group's story

Roshel, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 10 farmers in Teso District. She is 57 years old, married and has four children.

Roshel likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2019 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Roshel plans to use the profits from this coming season to invest in a business.

In total, Roshel’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 8.75 acres of land. Given that a member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
