Dufatanye Cb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Dufatanye Cb, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail. In English, the group’s name translates to “Let us come together.”

Elevanie is 52 years old and married with three children aged 10 to 15 years. She is also this group’s proud representative.

Elevanie sells banana plantains at the local market to make ends meet for her family and has been running this business for the past 33 years. She is requesting this loan to buy more banana plantains for her business to meet customer demand. This loan will help her support her family financially, which can help her in raising her children and improving her situation financially.

Elevanie hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to develop financially. In the future, she plans to see her business grow to the point where she can gain more from it and increase her savings. She thanks you for your support.
