Rosebella's Group's story

Rosebella is a 41-year-old proud mother of six children. She is a group leader, often described as a very experienced farmer, and is representing her group of nine farmers in Matete District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Rosebella has noticed that she has had more profits from each harvest.

Rosebella described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize seed, because she will now be able to have an overall improved quality of life. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Rosebella’s Group will be able to plant a total of 5.5 acres of land and purchase a total of 6 solar lights.
