A loan of $275 helps a member to gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.
Rosebellah's Group's story
This season is not Rosebellah's first working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2015. She is a leader representing a group of 11 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.
Rosebellah is often described by her community as a very resourceful person and decided to be the one to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers. Like many of her fellow farmers, Rosebellah decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. She hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.
This loan will not only help Rosebellah but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 1.75 acres of land.
In this group: Rosebellah, Rabecca, Brian, Nambale, Anjelina, A Wambongo, Khakayi, Lumbasi, L Imbongo, Isaac, Mary
