Icyizere Cb Group's story

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

Leatitia is 39 years old and married with six children aged between 1.9 months and 19 years. She is the group’s proud representative.

Leatitia sells fruits at the local market and has been running this business for the past three years. Leatitia has requested this loan to buy more bananas to sell at the market to meet customer demand. This will help her earn an income, raise her children, and improve her lifestyle.

In the future, Leatitia plans to see her business growing to the level where she can gain more from it.

She thanks you for your support.
