Abakundanye Group's story

Speciose is 24 years old. Due to her experience and background, she was nominated as the group leader for ABAKUNDANYE. She is the person raising her hand, wearing tradition clothes (ibitenge).

Speciose has been operating a timber business for the past 4 years. Like many of those in the group, her business is well organized and requires that she works every day. Despite the long days, she is determined to operate a successful business in order to have a better life.

Speciose has requested a loan from Kiva through VisionFund Rwanda in order to buy more timber to sell. With the profits from this loan, she will be able to reinvest in her business.

Speciose hopes to have a better life in future. This is the second cycle of her taking a loan.
