Duterimbere Cb Group's story

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

Faina is 30 years old, married with two children between 1.5 months and 9 years, and is the group’s proud representative.

Faina owns a boutique at the local market and has been running this business for the past five years. Faina has requested this loan to buy more sugar, beans and rice to sell at the market to meet customer demand so that she can have an income. The income can help her to raise her children and improve her lifestyle. In the future, Faina plans to see her business growing to the level that she can gain more from it.

She thanks you for your support
