Tuzamukebategarugori Cb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Tuzamukebategarugori CB, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail. The group’s name translates to “Let us develop dear women” in English.

Liberatha is 35 years old and married with three children aged between 2 and 9 years. She is the group’s proud representative.

Liberatha sells charcoal at the local market to make ends meet for her family and has been running this business for the past four years. Liberatha is requesting this loan to buy more charcoal to add in her business to meet customer demand so that she can be able to support her family financially, which can help her in raising her children and help her improve financially.

Liberatha hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to develop financially. In the future, Liberatha 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.
