Abadasigana Acb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Abadasigana ACB, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from construction to retail. The group’s name translates to “committed people” in English.

Alphred is 52 years old, married with 11 children aged between 11 and 32 years, and is the group’s proud representative.

Alphred sells timber and has been running this business for the past 7 years. Alphred has requested this loan to buy more timber to sell at the market to meet customer demand so that he can have an income, which can help him to raise his children and improve his lifestyle.

In the future, Alphred plans to see his business growing to the level he can gain more from it.

He thanks you for your support.
