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

Marcelline owns a beauty salon and has been running this business for the past 12 years. Marcelline has requested this loan to buy more equipment for her salon to meet customer demand so that she can have an income, which can help her to raise her children and improve her lifestyle.

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