Urumuri Cb Group's story

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

Dative is 24 years old, married with one child of 7 years, and is the group’s proud representative.

Dative owns a restaurant at the local market to make ends meet for her family and has been running this business for the past 3 years. Dative is requesting this loan to buy more beans, cassava, and rice to add to her business to meet customer demand so that she can support her family financially, which can help her in raising her children and help her improve financially.

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

She thanks you for your support.
