Twitekubukungu Tcb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Twitekubungu TCB, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses that vary from food production to retail. The group’s name translates to “Let us care about our economy” in English.

Everine is 46 years old and the mother of two children who are sixteen and twenty-five years years old. She is also the group’s proud representative.

For the last five years she has earned a living by selling avocados. She is requesting this loan to buy more avocados to sell so that she can meet customer demand and support her family financially. Everine also hopes that the extra income generated by this loan will allow her to grow her business.

Everine is grateful to have the support of Kiva lenders.
