Duhaguruke Cb Group's story

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

Viviane is 48 years old, married with five children aged between 3 and 29 years old and is the group’s proud representative.

Viviane sells foodstuffs at the local market and has been running this business for the past five years. Viviane has requested this loan to buy more sorghum, maize, Irish potatoes and beans 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.

Viviane hopes that the profits from this loan will allow her to save, build a house and increase her savings. In the future, Viviane plans to see her business growing to the level that she can gain more from it.

She thanks you for your support
