Icyerecyezo Cb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Icyerecyezo CB, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail. The group’s name translates to “Direction” in English.

Godelieve is 51 years old, married with 8 children aged between 4 and 30 years, and is the group’s proud representative. She replaced Euphrasie as the current group president.

Godelieve sells foodstuffs in a restaurant to make ends meet for her family. She has been running this business for the past 4 years. Godelieve has requested this loan to buy more sorghum and banana plantains to add to her business to meet customer demand, so that she can be able to support her family financially. This can help her in raising her children and improving financially, as well as building the best restaurant in the area.

Godelieve plans to see her business grow to the level where she can gain more from it.

She thanks you for your support!
