Abahuje Sub Group A's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Abahuje CB Sub grp A, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail. The group’s name translates “Wake up” in English.

Eugenie is 49 years old and married with five children aged between 11 and 23 years. She is the group’s proud representative.

Eugenie sells foodstuffs at the local market and has been running this business for the past 25 years. Eugenie has requested this loan to buy more sorghum and banana plantains to sell at the market to meet customer demand. This will help her earn an income, raise her children, and improve her lifestyle.

Eugenie hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to buy a piece of land, furnish her house, and put electricity in her house. In the future, Eugenie plans to see her business growing to the level where she can gain more from it.

She thanks you for your support.
