Rose's Group's story

Rose's Group is formed by 11 farmers in Chwele District and is being represented by Rose, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 62 years old and has 5 children. Rose has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Rose isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2013 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, Rose 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 have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Rose's Group will purchase a total of 10 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 4.75 acres.

In this group: Rose, Beatrice, Caroline, Cecila, Doreen, Emilly, Jeremia, Julius, Neddy, Zaitun , Rodgers


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
