Fulumena is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund. This means that she will be able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, This is why she decided to join in the first place. Fulumena says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly.
