Rose's Group's story

Pictured above is Rose, often described as an extremely friendly person. She is 50 years old and has five children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of nine farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Rose is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund as this means that she is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Rose says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has earned more profits from each harvest, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Rose will use the profits from this season to invest in a business.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of five acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
