Ubumwe Cb Group's story

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

Telesphore is 35 years old and married with two children, ages 3 and 4 years old. He is the group’s proud representative.

Telesphore is a tailor at the local market working to make ends meet for his family. He has been running this business for the past two years. Telesphore is requesting this loan to buy more clothes to add to his tailoring business to meet customer demand so that he can raise his children and help his family improve financially.

Telesphore hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow him to develop financially. In the future, Telesphore plans to see his business grow to the level at which he can gain more from it and increase his savings. He thanks you for your support.
