Abunzubumwe Cb Group's story

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

Violette is 39 years old and married with 3 children who are aged between 10 and 15 years. She is the group’s proud representative.

Violette owns a boutique and has been running this business for the past 2 years. Violette has requested this loan to buy more rice, maize flour, cooking oil, beans and sugar to sell at the market to meet customer demand so that she can have an income, which can help her to bring up her children and improve her lifestyle.

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

She thanks you for your support.
