Abatuje Cb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Abatuje Cb, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail. The group’s name translates to “people who work with calm" in English.

Lydie is 34 years old with four children between 23 and 10 years old and is the group’s proud representative.

Lydie sells foodstuffs in the local market and has been running this business for the past seven years.

She is requesting this loan to buy more beans to add in her business to meet customer demand so that she can be able to support her family financially and help the society get what they need.

Lydie hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her grow her business and increase savings.

She thanks you for your support.
