Twizerane Cb Group's story

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

Gislene is 37 years old, married and has a 12-year-old child; she is the group’s proud representative.

Gislene sells foodstuffs at the local market to meet ends for her family and has been running this business for the past four years. Gislene is requesting this loan to buy more cassava, beans and banana to add to her business to meet customer demand so that she can be able to support her family financially which can help her in raising her children and help her improve financially.

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

She thanks you for your support.
