Rebakuremuvumvu Group's story

Laurence is married mother of one child, who is 1 year old. She is living together with her partner in the Kabarore community in the east of the country.

For the past two years, Laurence has sold drinks such as: soda, local drinks, milk, etc. to the community. Her business is organized and Laurence and her team are catering to the well being of their families. Laurence is requesting a loan so she can overcome her challenges by purchasing more drinks in order to have enough stock to increase her sales and revenue.

With any profits, she will be able to buy enough food for her children, to buy medical insurance for the family, and she will be able to save for her future. This is her second loan cycle with Visionfund Rwanda and she is the REBAKUREMUVUMVU Group leader. In the picture, Laurence has raised up her hand.
