Icyizere Cb Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more children's clothes to sell.

Icyizere Cb Group's story

Mapendo is 25 years old, married, and has two children who are 4 and 8 years old. Her husband is a cameraman. For the past three years she has been selling clothes.

Mapendo is the leader of the group called ICYIZERE CB, which in English means “Trust.” Group members sell different items and own a variety of businesses.

In Mapendo's case, she will use her share of the loan to buy more children's clothes to sell. With the profits from her sales she will be able to provide for her family and increase her savings.

Due to the global pandemic Urwego was not able to photograph all the members, but was able to take the group president’s photo to represent the rest of the group.
