Umurava Cb Sub Grp B Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda!

This is Umurava CB, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail shops. The group’s name translates as "Work together” in English.

Ancille is 52 years old and married with four children aged between 30 and 25 years. She is the group’s proud representative.

Ancille owns a canteen at the local market and has been running this business for the past 15 years. Ancille has requested this loan to buy more equipment for her canteen so as to meet customer demand. The income can help her to raise her children and improve her lifestyle.

Ancille plans to see her business growing to the level she can gain more from it.

She thanks you for your support
