Rosemary's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase two solar lights, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.
Rosemary's Group's story
Rosemary's Group is formed by 13 farmers in Webuye District, and is being represented by Rosemary, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 29 years old, is married, and has one child. Rosemary has been a farmer for 10 years, and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual. Rosemary 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 ever since. This year, Rosemary will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase two solar lights. She is very excited about this addition, since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Using this loan, Rosemary's Group will purchase a total of 12 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 6.5 acres.
