A loan helped to buy more cassava, beans and bananas to add to her business.

Jijuka Cb Group's story

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

Marie Rose is 39 years old and married with six children between the ages of 3 and 9 years. She is the group’s proud representative.

Marie Rose sells foodstuffs at the local market to meet ends for her family and has been running this business for the past 5 years. Marie Rose is requesting this loan to buy more cassava, beans and bananas to add to her business to meet customer demand so that she can be able to support her family financially. This will help her in raising her children.

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

She thanks you for your support.
