Twuzuzanye Cb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Twuzuzanye Cb, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from retail to services. The group’s name translates to “Coming Together” in English.

Leatitia is 38 years old and married with three children aged between 2.5 months and 11 years old. She is the group’s proud representative.

Leatitia owns a bar at the local market and has been running this business for the past eight years. She has requested this loan to buy more equipment for the bar to sell at the market to meet customer demand so that she can have an income, which can help her to raise her children and improve her lifestyle.

Leatitia hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to educate her children as well as paying her taxes. In the future, she plans to see her business growing to the level she can gain more from it.

She thanks you for your support
