Rodah's Group's story

Pictured is Rodah, often described as an extremely reliable person. She is 63 years old and has nine children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers from Mumias district, Kenya.

Rodah 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. Rodah says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Rodah will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.75 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.

In this group: Rodah, Jane, Rebecca, Bonface, Kizito, Jacob, Fred, Judith, Anne, Polycap


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
