Tuzamurane Tcb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Tuzamurane Tcb, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from retail to food production. The group’s name translates to “Let's Develop Ourselves” in English. Vanessa is 32 years old and married with three children between five and nine years old and is the group’s proud representative.

Vanessa owns a shop at the local market to make ends meet for her family and has been running this business for the past three years. She is requesting this loan to buy more Irish potatoes, cooking oil and rice to add to her business to meet customer demand. That way she will be able to support her family financially, which can help her in raising her children and help her improve financially.

Vanessa hopes that the extra profits from this loan will allow her to develop financially and educate her children. In the future, she plans to see her business growing to the level where she can gain more from it and increase her savings.

She thanks you for your support
