Rosebellah's Group's story

Pictured above is Rosebellah, often described as an extremely reliable person. She is 39 years old and has 8 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 12 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Rosebellah is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Rosebellah says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2017, she has been able to save more money, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Rosebellah will use the profits from this season to buy a goat.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 14.75 acres.

In this group: Rosebellah, Hellen, Grace, Emmy, Lydia, Hellen, William, Paul, Nelly, Stephen, Priscilla, Zainab
