Rose's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Rose's Group's story

Rose, pictured above, has been a farmer for 12 years, and she is now proud to represent her group of 15 farmers in Kakamega South District. She is 36 years old, married, and has 6 children. Rose likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2013 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Rose plans to use the profits from this coming season to invest in a business. In total, Rose’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 6.5 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing solar lights with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 9 solar lights.
