PaygOps x One Acre Fund Series Episode 3: How do we Help Improve Farming Families' Quality of Life?
Once you've helped farmers increase their yields, what's next? How can you help them improve other areas of their lives and support them in their paths to prosperity?
In this new instalment of the PaygOps x One Acre Fund "life-changing" series, get to know the inspiring story of Rosemary, a resilient smallholder farmer in Kenya who improved her quality of life substantially ever since she joined the One Acre Fund programme backed by PaygOps.
