Groupe Irhe's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy three nets and a boat as well as pay for harvesting soybeans for resale.

Groupe Irhe's story

Pierre has been fisihing for over 15 years using an artisanal fishnet. At present, he catches small fish using a gill net. This business helps him to provide for his family even though he sometimes needs to suspend fishing on the orders of the environmental protection agency.

In the future he plans to buy a motorised pirogue [a long canoe boat] in order to deliver his small fry to Bukavu, where the market is quite profitable. Pierre is the one dressed in a grey suit and raising his hand.
