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

A loan helped to purchase more fertilizer and seeds to use in the field.

Twitezimbere Kivumo Group's story

Greetings from Rwanda!

This is Twitezimbere Kivumo group, and the group leader is called Chantal. (Due to the global pandemic, VisionFund Rwanda was not able to photograph all the members, but it was able to get one representative for the group photo, who is the president.) Chantal is 43 years old and married with 10 children. Some children are attending school, and others are not because they are still too young. She loves her children very much, and that is why she is working very hard in order to get all the basic needs for her children. Other members and the community used to joke with her that she has a football team at home, and she is a coach because she has so many children. Group members like her very much because she is responsible and she is a good leader.

She owns an agriculture business, and she sells Irish potatoes, beans, maize, etc. to the community. Chantal lives in the north of the country, and where she is located they are happy because they very much need these types of products. This will allow her to gain much profits.

She has been running this business for the past 25 years, and also she has one employee to help her. Chantal has requested this loan to purchase more fertilizer and seeds to use in the field. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her savings, to pay for medical insurance for the family, and to pay school fees for her children.

Chantal is very grateful for the support.
