Jyambere Cb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is JYAMBERE CB, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail. The group’s name translates to “Stepping Forward” in English.

Naome is 34 years old with 3 children aged 8-12 years old and she is the group’s proud representative.

Naome is a tailor at the local market, making ends meet for her family. She has been running this business for the past 16 years. Naome is requesting this loan to buy more clothing materials for tailoring to add to her business to meet customer demand so that she can support her family financially, which can help her in raising her children.

In the future, Naome 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.
