Abakundana Acb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Abakundana Acb, a group of entrepreneurs who own a shop. The group’s name translates to “Lovely People” in English.

Joselyne is 38 years old and married with three children, ages between 5 and 16 years; she is the group’s proud representative. She sells various consumables at the local market to meet ends for her family and has been running this business for the past 20 years.

Joselyne is requesting this loan to buy more sugar, salt, and rice to add in her business to meet customers’ demands so that she can be able to support her family, which can help her in raising her children and help her improve financially.

Joselyne hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to develop financially. In the future, she plans to see her business grow to the level where she can gain more from it and increase her savings. She thanks you for your support.
