Turebekure Cb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda!

This is Turebekure Cb, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail. The group’s name translates into English as “Let's See The Future”.

Emerthe is 42 years old and married with five children aged between 9 and 20. She is the group’s proud representative.

Emerthe sells foodstuffs at the local market and has been running this business for the past 5 years. She has requested this loan to buy more plantain bananas. She will sell these at the market to meet customer demand, so that she can have an increased income, which can help her to raise her children and improve her lifestyle.

In the future, Emerthe plans to see her business growing to the level at which she can earn more from it.

She thanks you for your support.
