Ishema Acb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Ishema Acb, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail. The group’s name translates to “to be proud” in English.

Claudine is 42 years old and married with three children between 22-10 years old. She is the group’s proud representative.

Claudine sells spare parts to make ends meet for her family and has been running this business for the past six years. Claudine is requesting this loan to buy more car spare parts to add to her business to meet customer demand so that she can be able to support her family financially, which can help her in raising her children.

In the future, Claudine plans to see her business growing to the level where she can gain more from it.

She thanks you for your support.
