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

A loan helped to expand her small shop to pay for her children’s school fees and food for her family.

Umucyo Group's story

Marie Chantal is 35 years old and is married. She has six children, ages two to 18 years old. All of her six children go to school. As the group leader for UMUCYO, she’s shown in this photo as the person raising her hand.

Marie Chantal has been in business for three years doing potatoes. She is taking out a loan to buy more potatoes and hopes that, as a result of this loan, she’ll be able to increase profits with her business so that she can expand her business.

This is Marie Chantal’s second loan cycle with VisionFund Rwanda. With this loan, she hopes her family’s life will improve by paying school fees for her children and to save for her future.
