Rose'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 harvesting season.

Rose's Group's story

Pictured above is Rose, who represents 11 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children and is known by her community as a very friendly person.

Rose joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since she joined the program, her life has improved because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Rose plans to rent more land to cultivate.

Between the 11 farmers in Rose 's Group, 9.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
