Rosa's Group's story

Pictured above is Rosa, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 69 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 13 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is married and has 5 children.

Rosa is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Rosa says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2012, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Rosa will use the profits from this season to buy more land to cultivate.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5 acres.

In this group: Rosa, Rael, Collince, Celina, Khamete, Leonida, Jenipher, Dina, Makanga, Shikanga, Anne, Everline, Mutembeyi
