C8318 Duterimbere Group's story

Esperance is a leader of C8318 Duterimbere group and is on her 19th loan cycle through VisionFund Rwanda. In the picture, she is the woman raising her hand. Esperance is married and has three children, all of whom go to school.

She said that since she joined VisionFund Rwanda, her life has changed because of expanding her business. She sells local drinks to the community and she has 13 years experience in this business. Also she has one employee to help her.

With any profits, Esperance will be able to expand her business by purchasing a large quantity of sorghum in order to make local drinks for sale. She will then be able to pay school fees for her children, and buy enough food for her family. Her hopes and dreams for her family are that they will one day will have a better life and will be able to reach far as they wish.
