Abahuje Juru Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Abahuje Juru, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail. The group’s name translates into “trusted people” in English.

Ancille is 40 years old and married with four children aged between 2 and 11 years. She is the group’s proud representative.

Ancille owns a shop at the local market to make ends meet for her family and has been running this business for the past 2 years. Ancille is requesting this loan to buy more sugar, salt and rice to resell in her business to meet customer demand so that she can support her family financially. This will help her raise her children and will improve the family's financial situation.

Ancille hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to develop financially. In the future, Ancille plans to see her business growing to the level that she can gain more from it and increase her savings.

She thanks you for your support!
