A loan helped to buy more banana plantains.

Abadahemuka Cb Group's story

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

Marie Therese is 42 years old, married with three children aged between 12 and 16 years, and is the group’s proud representative.

Marie Therese sells foodstuffs at the local market and has been running this business for the past 5 years. Marie Therese has requested this loan to buy more banana plantains to sell at the market to meet customer demand so that she can have an income, which can help her to bring up her children and improve her lifestyle.

Marie Therese hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to buy a machine to make processed bananas. In the future, Marie Therese plans to see her business growing to the level she can gain more from it.

She thanks you for your support.
