Roselyne's Group's story
"Roselyne's Group is formed by 11 farmers in Matete District and is being represented by Roselyne, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 48 years old, is married and has 4 children. Roselyne has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual. Roselyne isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2012 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family. This year, Roselyne will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during the night in order to feel safer. Using this loan, Roselyne's Group will purchase a total of 8 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 8.25 acres."
