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

A loan helped to buy more sorghum crops to sell at the market and meet customer demand.

Umucyo Cb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is UMUCYO CB, a group of entrepreneurs who own different businesses. The group’s name translates to “Light” in English. Tatricie is 53 years old and is the group’s proud representative. Patricie sells sorghum (a super grain!) at the local market and has been running this business for the past 13 years.

Patricie has requested this loan to buy more sorghum to sell at the market to meet customer demand. Patricie hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her group to improve their standard of living.

In the future, Patricie plans to see her business grow and send all her children to school. She thanks you for your support.
