Dutezanyimbere Cb Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Dutezanyimbere Cb, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail. The group’s name translates to “let's develop each other” in English.

Donathe is 49 years old, married, and is the group’s proud representative.

Donathe owns a butcher shop at the local market to make ends meet for her family and has been running this business for the past 14 years. Donathe is requesting this loan to buy more meat to add to her business to meet customer demand so that she can be able to support her family financially, which will help her in raising her children.

In the future, Donathe plans to see her business growing to the level where she can gain more from it and renovate her house.

She thanks you for your support.
