Haguruka Tcb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Haguruka Tcb, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses. The group’s name translates to “wake up” in English.

Jeanne is 35 years old and married with five children aged between 3 and 12 years. She is the group’s proud representative.

Jeanne owns a shop at the local market to meet ends for her family and has been running this business for the past two years. Jeanne is requesting this loan to buy more sugar, salt, and rice to add in her business. This will help her 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.

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

She thanks you for your support.
