Ubumwe Birembo Group's story

Berthe is a 32-year-old married mother of three children. She is the leader of the UBUMWE BIREMBO Group, a group composed of 10 members. In the photo, she is the woman who is raising her hand.

Berthe operates a small business selling charcoal. She works hard to support her family and provide them with a better life. Every morning Berthe opens her stand at 5 a.m. and works tirelessly until her daily supply is sold. She foresees an unwavering demand, which she hopes will allow her to expand her business as she acquires more funds. She is requesting a loan from Kiva via VisionFund Rwanda Company to buy more charcoal to sell to her community. With any profits, she will be able to get medical insurance for her family, buy shoes for her children, buy enough food for her children, expand her business and save for her future.
