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 harvesting season.


Rose's Group's story

Pictured above is Rose, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 17 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is a mother to 12 children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Rose joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Rose plans to send her children to school.

Between the 17 farmers in Rose's Group, a total of 12.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of four solar lights.
