Umucyo Tcb Sub Grp A Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda! This is Umucyo Tcb Sub Grp A, a group of entrepreneurs who own businesses varying from food production to retail stores. The group’s name translates to “the light” in English

Fortunee is a 30 year old married woman with two children aged between 4 and 7 years old. She is the group’s proud representative.

Fortunee is a tailor at the local market which helps her make ends meet for her family. She has been running this business for the past 6 years. Fortunee is requesting this loan to buy more women's clothes for tailoring to aid in her business and meet customer demand. It will allow her to be able to support her family financially, which can help her in raising her children and help her improve financially.

Fortunee hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to improve her family's standard of living. In the future Fortunee plans to grow her business to the level she can earn more from it and increase her savings. She thanks you for your support.
