Magirirane Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Magirirane Group, located in the north of the country. This group is composed of eight members and they are happy to work together. Florence is 24 years old and married, with one child who is four months old. She is the group’s proud representative and in the picture she is kneeling in front of the others.

Florence has sold general store items such as sugar, lotions, drinks, food, etc., in the boutique for six years. She is organized and she is always thinking bigger on how her business can create jobs for others in her community. Now she has one employee to help her.

She is requesting this loan to purchase more sugar, lotions, drinks, food, etc., to sell in the boutique so that she can be able to support her family financially, which can help her in raising her child and help her improve financially.

In the future, she 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.
