Rehema's Group's story

Rehema, pictured above, has 2 children and is always described as a very friendly person, which is why she was selected to become the group leader of her group. Rehema is representing her group of 11 farmers in Mumias District and is happy to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

Rehema has been a farmer for 4 years and, in order to earn enough to feed her family, she decided to join the One Acre Fund program this season. Her loan will not only include farming inputs but also a solar light, which she is very happy to be getting as that means she will now have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. With the profits from this coming season, Rehema is planning to buy chickens.

A total of 6 acres will be planted by Rehema's Group, and between them they will receive a total of 4 solar lights.

In this group: Rehema, Masakha, Aura, Linda, Peres, Michael, Ester, Rose, Macklaud, Anne, Agripina

This loan is special because:
